Science always manifested itself in my education, yet I did not always appreciate it. Like many students, I was frustrated with my natural science classes because they took a lot of effort and were not very stimulating. I just did not see science in the bigger picture at the time.

It was not until I came to Queens and decided to pursue a path in engineering that I decided to take my science education more seriously. To make the subject more interesting, I immersed myself in scientific content. I watched programs such as NOVA on PBS, watched science documentaries on YouTube, read articles about recent developments in the field, and became huge fans of modern day scientific communicators like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michio Kaku, and Brian Greene, some of whom I have met.

Upon taking this initiative, I realized that science was fascinating. Developing an understanding of the natural world changed the way I viewed it. It has certainly made the classes that I take more interesting. Rather than treating them as something I had to drag myself through, they became the fine-tuners of the details of the beautiful picture in which I now saw science.

The purpose of this blog is to help its readers nurture their science literacy and experience the world in a different perspective. It is my hope that everybody can experience the curiosity, joy, possibility and wonder that I feel when I think about science. Welcome to The Cosmic View.
