My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky. Share Your Sky »

My Story

Tell us about why you love space exploration, what got you excited in the first place, when inspires you, or whatever you would like to share with your community of space fans! In our newsletter each month we will ask a different question. Share Your Story »

A biochemist's place in space

by Amber Lucas

May 7, 2014 | 0 comments

I've always been a person who was very involved in science, specifically chemistry and biochemistry. These sciences differ from astronomy in a great deal. In biochemistry, we are looking at extremely small details. The bonds between proteins in the body, the mechanism of catalysis in different chemical reactions, the regulation of different genes in the body, etc. I was spending the majority of my time thinking on a scale that was much smaller than I was, thinking about all these processes that were occuring in my body all the time. All these processes that were so close to me, and ... more »
