Why Does This Website Exist?
There are three main reasons I chose to create this website. The first and most simple reason is simply to learn how to create a website! I love the internet and use it addictively. I like computers and work with them as my profession and basically just wanted to know how it all works. Just as a side note, I now have a deeper respect for good websites and the people who create them… this stuff is not easy!
The second, and probably the most practical reason is for my own personal use. The idea is to use this website as a ‘living database’ of sorts for all the information I plan to collect during my observations. As you have probably gathered, I am an amateur astronomer that is not doing any ‘real science,’ but more for just the fun of it. So, if you are looking for an abundant source of useful data, you might want to start by checking out my Links page where you’ll find a few of some of my favorite sites… or you could just google it!
The third, and probably the most meaningful reason I decided to create this website is just for my love of science in general. You may notice a few items on this site that are not directly related to astronomy, but almost everything on here is based off of science in some aspect. I am a huge fan of reason, logic, knowledge, and understanding and nothing else combines these things as well as science does. Just by making this website, I will add to my knowledge of science, but beyond that, it will also help me give back to the science community as much as possible. I understand the data here is probably not what you are looking for, but every little bit helps.
So thank you for stopping by! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at:
Make it a great day!
In early 2012, I posted this thought I had regarding space and my love for astronomy: “So, here’s a cool thing: There are currently sixteen robots (spacecraft) roaming our solar system and sending back data. Imagine in your mind, zooming back from the solar system with a bird’s eye view looking down and seeing the […]
