Space to me represents an unparalleled opportunity for innovation, discovery, and research - pushing the boundaries of what we think is possible will bring us whole new technologies we can''t even imagine at the present.
Space is by no means intuitive. If you could be in space without a suit, you wouldn''t hear a sound. You could go 10 km/s without feeling a thing. To work on a space project is to think beyond the norm, to solve problems in ridiculous, beautiful ways, even when the odds are terribly stacked against you. This is what I love about space.
The need to discover and learn about what lies beyond our world drives so much ingenious innovation and the goal of making space habitable still hasn''t been fully realized. There''s a great deal more to be done, and I''m excited to see and work on the new technologies that will help make space exploration and research more accessible to all!
Space exploration is the epitome of human knowledge and curiosity. Like many others, my curiosity in space arises as a result of the inquisitive human nature. Specifically, I am interested and fascinated in discovering how space expiration can affect life here on Earth.
My whole life, I have always asked ''why?'' I am curious about everything that I encounter and how the world around us works. I am interested in space because I believe that it contains the ultimate questions in our world.
Thirty years ago, the voyager spacecraft took its last peek at the earth. In its eye, the earth appeared as a tiny dot, so negligible against the vast universe. The image evokes an awe-inspiring sensation in many of its viewers including me. Comparing to the grandeur of the universe, the earth inevitably loses its lust: the violent history it went through is not so significant\; the various dwellers it incubates may not be so unique. Living deep inside the society, we constantly accept our environment as the totality of our universe, failing to recognize the existence of a much wider one filled with highly-energetic particles traveling close to the speed of light, humongous stars clusters spanning across hundreds of lightyears, and exploding stars outshining a whole galaxy. Therefore, driven by the simplest and purest motivation, curiosity, I let go of my imagination to be carried by the wonders of the universe.
Cue to an ordinary night in the far future. A person looks up at the sky and sees a sky resembling ours, but with multiple moons. To us, it''s a surreal sight. To this person, it''s normal. I hope to help make this event a reality.
Are we alone? That question remains unsolved\; however, modern science has allowed us to begin to formulate our answer. Researching how microorganisms behave in space clues us in to how life arose on Earth and perhaps elsewhere in the universe. Space is intriguing to me because it allows us to answer humanity''s biggest questions.
From microwaves to foil and propulsion systems, the sheer amount of innovation that has come from the human desire to explore space is mind blowing. Aside from being fascinated by the mysteries of space, I love space technology because of its potential to improve lives and further our fundamental understandings of the universe.
Generations of humans have looked up at the stars and wondered what was out there, pulling grandiose stories out of the unknown to turn stars into fierce animals and demigods. I''m lucky to exist at a time where humanity has rapidly advanced space exploration, and I hope to advance space-related technology in my lifetime.
In Space, there is so much that we don''t know about. We have barely scratched the surface. I am interested in space because of the amount f exploration that we can do, learn about new ways to travel, unlocking the mysteries of different stars and planets.
I have been fascinated with space ever since I was young. My dream job was to be an astronaut when I grew up. Although I don''t know whether that dream will come to fruition, being able to push the boundaries of space technology with STAC is the next best thing.
