Although it feels beyond incredible to be finished with school for the summer, I'm really going to miss my Astronomy class. I took it as a gen-ed class not thinking much of it, but I think it's been the most fascinating class I've taken in school yet. Obviously the size of the universe was just a "small" thing we learned in class, but here's a corny-made video that really demonstrates it --if you've never seen anything like it before..
Probably the nerd in me, but don't you think it's amazing that our bodies are made up of elements and matter that formed in the hearts of stars billions of years ago? i think it's THE sauce.
If anyone out there goes to college and needs the gen-ed credit, probably take this class.
ALSO, if it's been a while since you've taken a drive to remote country and looked up at the sky at night.. highly recommend it. you won't be disappointed.
