To boldly go

Since the dawn of man, we have asked questions; recently we have started answering them. In the words of John F. Kennedy, "No man can fully grasp how far and how fast we have come." I am in a perpetual state of awe at how our insignificant species went from figuring out how apples fall down to landing on our nearest satellite with a computer as powerful as my TI-84, all a few milliseconds "before midnight." Currently, I am pursuing studies in astrophysics but a career in politics. I would like to further human knowledge and keep our place in space, but I also want to be the change I want to see and make the world a better place.
