That time when a student…

  • finds their asteroid for the first time


  • tells me how much fun she’s having working on a conservation of angular momentum problem at 11pm on a Saturday night.
  • realizes I’ve never done a differential correction, but I’m asking them to do it anyway
  • stays up late helping a teammate debug a code
  • realizes the stuff he heard in the classroom is not enough to answer a question on the problem set
  • looks up additional ways to solve the problem because the two ways presented in lecture and the handouts just isn’t enough ways
  • decides to spend their last summer as a high-school student away from home learning about astronomy, physics, and coding instead of making pizzas for $5/hr under the table like I did when I was their age

Damn, I love this job.
