I joined ATS when I was 15. What got me interested in science at that time the most was understanding the wonders of the universe, astronomy. Very quickly, a fascination with just astronomy expanded into an interest in physics. This was before YouTube, Netflix, and although the internet wasn't at all primitive, finding online videos just wasn't really a thing. But, I watched the science and the discovery channels all the time at home. And one of my favorite personalities to watch on TV was Dr. Michio Kaku.

Last night, he did a lecture here in Austin, TX. I had to go*. The lecture was great, and he spent a lot of time answering questions from the audience, which is always greatly appreciated. So I took my copy of Physics of the Impossible to have him sign it. And sign it he did!




The only thing is, my name is Ryan.


*Neil DeGrasse Tyson is coming to San Antonio in June, and I'd love to see him, too. But $275 a ticket for average seats my ass.

I would change it to Wryyen
This way you could get a kick out of anyone trying to pronounce it.

Wish i could talk to Grass Tyson guy myself. Got lots of space questions.

There's nothing like meeting our heroes...even if we discover they make mistakes just like the rest of us.

P.S. for me, my thing......... it's old custom cars,,, 50s and 60s stuff.
I met George Barris one year and Norm Grabowski the next at the Daytona Turkey Rod Run
& OH!! also saw "The Matador" ( one of my favorite classic customs too), with my son! Also a car nut. (if you're a dad you'll understand.)

Kudos to you and your passion! Passion is a wonderful gift, not bestowed on all of us. Only the lucky ones
