"Science is Fun"

Trisha Borgman - April 29, 1996

    So did everyone get to watch the Live from HST broadcast last week? Those of you who did watch it know that I was interviewed as part of the walk-through of the Space Telescope Science Institute. I really had a lot of fun with everyone who was involved in that minute or so of filming! (Believe it or not, it took us over 30 minutes just to get that little blip of film!)

It's hard to believe that this program is beginning to wind down-- I've sure enjoyed writing the journals, answering your questions, and participating in the broadcasts!

As for me, I'll be graduating from Johns Hopkins University (with my physics degree) in about 3 weeks, and I can hardly wait! I'll be continuing at Hopkins, working on a Master's in Teaching. I hope to teach high school physics. But, I'm definitely not giving up on astronomy! I'm looking for ways to combine my interests in astronomy and education, so my career may very well take a few creative turns!

Oh yeah, and about those wispy clouds in our observing images... well, unfortunately I still don't know what they are! It's going to take a little investigating to truly understand where they came from... I guess patience is important in ANY career!

Well, I just wanted to write a quick note to all of you who have been participating in the program. As I said, I've sure had a lot of fun! From talking to those of you who came out to Hopkins and the Space Telescope Science Institute last week, it sounds like a lot of you have really learned that science can be FUN... You're absolutely right! Science is a really fascinating subject, and I hope that each and every one of you has learned a little bit more about the Universe as a result of this program.

Good luck in the future!
