I Love My STEMM Subject Because

I was intro­duced to astron­o­my at the age of 11, mar­veling at the night sky’s myr­i­ad stars. I was instant­ly amazed by the sheer scale and beau­ty of it. Explor­ing pic­tures and books taught me our small place but sig­nif­i­cant quest in this expand­ing cos­mos. Astron­o­my has evolved over time with tech­no­log­i­cal advance­ments. Man, who once pon­dered about what lay in the sky, has now reached the edge of the observ­able uni­verse. With the tech­nolo­gies emerg­ing in the upcom­ing years, it is def­i­nite­ly an excit­ing time to be in astronomy.
