I am a senior here at Ball State University pursuing a double major in astronomy and physics. Ever since I was little, I have always had questions about our Universe. After years of bombarding my family with these questions and getting no answers, I decided to pursue a career in astronomy. So far, I have learned so much! But, I felt that I needed more, which is why I decided to work at the Brown Planetarium. After I started getting some of my questions answered, I realized that I wanted to be able to provide others with what I couldn’t have until I reached higher education. Just because astronomy and physics is deemed a “hard topic” in our society, doesn’t mean you can’t be educated about it at younger or older ages. Science is for everyone, not just for the “brainiacs.” I feel that is what the Brown Planetarium is all about.
