Welcome to Cosmic Chatter - a space blog for everyone!

I think space is cool.  Really cool.  I spend a lot of time thinking about the science we're doing, the discoveries we're making, and the possibilities for the future.  I'd like to share some of that passion with you.

Who am I? My name is Morgan Rehnberg and I'm a graduate student in the University of Colorado - Boulder's Department of Astrophysics and Planetary Science.  But more than that, I'm someone who enjoys science and sharing science with others.  I love pulling out my personal telescope and just setting up for people to wander by.  I love talking to Boy and Girl Scout troops.  I love podcasting about science (more on that later).  Bottom line is, I get excited about science and want you to be, too.

I hope you'll join me in exploring where science is taking us in the twentieth-first century.  From Curiosity roving Mars to astronauts at the ISS to the Large Hadron Collider, humanity is doing some pretty neat stuff - let's check it out together.
