I'm a curious type of person. I like my life to be as interesting as possible, and understanding the cosmos is the most interesting thing of all.

I head up our ecology club at TVMS, and recycle all the schools paper. Actions matter. How active are you?

    We start the year with Atoms, the smallest things known,

    And move onto the phenomenon we call life.

    We end the year with the visable universe which is the largest thing which is directly knowable


    We are the way the universe learns about itself.

Animation of the variation of the synchrotron emission at 1400 MHz from Jupiter with a computer model

The animation shows the universe evolving from about 200 million years after the big bang until about 9 billion years ago, approximately what it looks like today, with brightness corresponding to gas density.
