Per ardua ad astra. Ex astris, scientia.
I'm Eleanor, I like science. Astronomy is my life, but I find many other subjects equally fascinating.
Once I graduate from high school, I'd like to major in Physics and eventually work my way up to a PhD.
I'm an inquisitive person, and this is a blog consisting of everything that intrigues me.
Feel free to ask me any questions you may have; I'm not a hostile person.
"For 99 percent of the tenure of humans on earth, nobody could read or write. The great invention had not yet been made. Except for firsthand experience, almost everything we knew was passed on by word of mouth. As in the children’s game “Telephone,” over tens and hundreds of generations, information would slowly be distorted and lost.
Books changed all that. Books, purchasable at low cost, permit us to interrogate the past with high accuracy; to tap the wisdom of our species; to understand the point of view of others, and not just those in power; to contemplate —with the best teachers—the insights, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, drawn from the entire planet and from all of our history. They allow people long dead to talk inside our heads. Books can accompany us everywhere. Books are patient where we are slow to understand, allow us to go over the hard parts as many times as we wish, and are never critical of our lapses. Books are key to understanding the world and participating in a democratic society." - Carl Sagan: ‘The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark’
