Having Fun at Twenty-One
Everybody on Facebook is posting photos of themselves at age 21. I don't know why. But I'm in. This is me fiddling around in my university's observatory. We had a nice 8-foot-long telescope and I hosted most of the public viewing sessions for three or so years. I got so good that I could grab the front of the scope and spin it around to point at a particular object in space without even looking. Did a couple of small research projects with my physics prof mentor. This dome was my cathedral.
