As a kid, I remember reading all sorts of books on futurism, particle physics, astrophysics, etc and found it all really impressive. So I wanted to be a physicist and develop basic science into stunning new technologies. I pretty much fit the stereotype.

In the real world, it turns out that I'm not mathematically or research-inclined. Too bad. So instead, I'm fulfilling that by running some astronomy and physics-related projects, giving to some science nonprofits and participating in Zooniverse projects. So I'm making a contribution to science after all!

My computer broke down a while ago. As soon as I have a new one, I'll start crunching for the C again.. Wonderful project!
