Black Holes and Stunning TV Illustrations
November 17, 2016
I found my passion at 30.
I began watching television shows like Through The Wormhole, and was fascinated by our studies of black holes and what happens to matter and light when it reaches and crosses the event horizon. After Through the Wormhole, I began my quest to quench my thirst for knowledge. After discovering Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Cosmos, I went back to watch the originals and began my study of Carl Sagan's work. Since then, I simply can't get enough.
Just over a year later, I am taking classes on black holes from UCLA, I am the proud owner of a $2,000 telescope with 8 lenses, several Stephen Hawking, NDT, and Bill Nye books (autographed of course), and a never-ending fascination with the stars.
