Astronomy Not Just for Astronomers

Astronomy Not Just for Astronomers

Originally uploaded by AlaskanLibrarian

This is a poster at the Mauna Kea Visitors center. It illustrates that it take more than astronomers to run an observing operation. This was a theme I saw several places in Hilo.

I almost majored in astronomy in my undergrad days, but wound up taking Computer Science. My heart wasn’t into computers for computers sake and I wound up a history major.

It would have been nice back in 1990 for someone to come along and say that there might still be a job in astronomy for me. Perhaps there still is. Or maybe there’s one for you. Look over the poster and think about it.
