When Astrophysics Meets Civil Rights, Amanda Nguyen
Amanda Nguyen reveals the two questions that drive her each day: What's our place in the universe? What am I going to do about it?
- I have two burning questions that I wake up every morning to. It's what is our place in the universe? And where am I going to do about it? Space makes me feel both so humbled and special at the same time. Because when you at the sky you see all these lights. And that star light has traveled billions of years. That photon has traveled all this way to reach your eye. We are but a blink of an eye in the universe. But also we're able to be cognizant, and love, and understand, and process our life. So what are we going to do with our flicker on earth? I'm going to use mine to fight for rights. And go to space.
