3 Memorable Moments to Share:

➡️ “Astronomy today is largely numerical; it operates on coding, it operates on numbers.”

➡️ “95% of the universe consists of dark energy and dark matter, which we can’t even really see.”

➡️ “You can convert it into sound, you can convert it into a haptic response. You can work with a 3D print. There are all these other ways of knowing.”
