No matter what question you might have about the heavens, my goal is to answer it. How does a black hole behave when stressed? What does it mean for the universe to be expanding (and what is it expanding into)? Why is our reality constantly wobbling? And the most important question of all— why does any of this matter? I hope to leave you readers with a deeper appreciation for the cosmos we are part of, and how the pursuit of astrophysics is uniquely poised to shaping our future.
So, just dive in! Enjoy the sights! And be sure to spread the awareness about astronomy and astrophysics wherever you can; the skies will love you as much as you love them.
Hi! I’m Pranet Sharma, a sophomore at Yale University studying physics and economics. But most of all, I love the universe and everything in it! My passion is to learn more about the skies—through the various research I’m involved in—while also sharing that knowledge. In my spare time, you’ll find me reading, watching and analyzing film, talking about philosophy or physics, hiking, swimming, eating, and playing the piano and guitar. I will always be accessible through email if you have any questions. Clear skies!
