"My big interest in astronomy came from when I was a kid. I grew up in the 80s and there was so much exciting stuff happening in space. There was the space shuttle, there were the Voyager probes, and Star Wars was the big movie. Also my father built his own telescope from scratch. And once I saw what you could see in a telescope, I knew I wanted to be an astronomer.
