Confession: I like Space


I am a total astronomy nerd. Astronomy, Cosmology, Astrobiology, etc. I had two telescopes as a child. I would stay up late under the covers with a flashlight reading about star lifecycles and nebulae. I love anything Carl Sagan has every said, including the term "star stuff." I keep track of where Venus is and what phase it's in. I try to stay on top of meteor showers and go see them whenever possible. That's why I chose to take this astronomy class this semester. It's a breeze. I already know all this stuff. I love it. So tonight when the teacher showed us Stellarium , I couldn't wait to get home and download it. Awesome.
