Hi there, I'm Laura! I'm 17, I love science and I play the banjo. This blog is a science-themed blog and a personal blog. I want to be a lot of things when I grow up, but most specifically, an astrophysicist, an astronaut, and quite possibly an author.
Thanks for visiting my blog!

"A handful of sand contains about 10,000 grains, more than the number of stars we can see with the naked eye on a clear night. But the number of stars we can see is only the tiniest fraction of the number of stars there are. What we see at night is the merest smattering of the nearest stars. Meanwhile the Cosmos is rich beyond measure: the total number of stars in the universe is greater than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the planet Earth.”
