Learn about yourself through learning about the world around you. It’s easiest to start with something that inspires you, something you’re interested in — it will all stem off from there.(made by me)
I am planning on making a series of posters commemorating my favorite scientists. First in the series is Carl Sagan, the astrophysicist and science diplomat who changed the lives of many through inspiring them to pursue and understand science through his professorship at Cornell University and a few other universities, his many books and the Cosmos television series. Not only did he inspire many, he achieved many great fears in astronomy such as being a key component in the Mariner 2 mission which discovered the atmospheric conditions of Venus, hypothesizing the presence of an atmosphere on Europa (a moon of Jupiter) and Titan (a moon of Saturn,) and eventually being proven right. He also worked to create a compilation of music and sounds of Earth to be sent aboard the Voyager mission — PS: if you want to hear a great love story, listen to the NPR story featuring Ann Druyan, how she met Carl Sagan and how they fell in love.

Carbon-12 is the most abundant, and most stable form of carbon accounting for almost 99% of carbon atoms. Carbon is also the building block of life as we know it.
Is this a coincidence? A message reminding us that there is life somewhere in the observable universe? Or a sign that there is a universal constant of life?
This number is also equal to Avragado’s number, one of the most important constants in modern day chemistry.
Electronics jokes, heh.
So my sister said her teacher said there are no stars in our galaxy.
AND SHE WON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TRY TO TELL HER OUR GALAXY HAS *AT LEAST* 200 BILLION STARS
