A coworker of mine has discovered a new interest outside of the US Civil War. I like the US Civil War and I don’t mind talking about it with him, although he does most of the talking, but sometimes I could use a new topic. So, now his new topic is “Space,” and I want to encourage it. It’s a subject that does interest me a little, but to be honest, I know very little.
From NASA to Astronomy, I have never really done much beyond sitting outside at night and looking at the stars wondering how people find lions, rabbits, dippers, bears, etc… So, I picked up my first book on astronomy by Jay M. Pasachoff. It’s very simple, with a few maps of the stars. It’s enough to allow me to have an elementary conversation with someone on the subject.
I do feel smarter and do appreciate just a little more about the “infinity and beyond”.
