Tianjia (Tina) Liu is a freshman at Columbia University. At Irvine High, she was deeply involved in community service, as Tutor Captain at the Irvine Heritage Library and volunteer at the Discovery Science Center. Inspired by COSMOS and an experience as a co-author for a published research paper, she wants to pursue research at Columbia. She is also an amateur poet, avid blogger and book reader, and astronomy enthusiast. She enjoys learning about astronomy and sharing that knowledge with others. To foster that knowledge, she has attended an Astronomy course at community college and the Astronomy and Astrophysics cluster at COSMOS: UCI, the California summer camp for science and math.
This blog is dedicated to the wonderful science of astronomy. Everything about the cosmos interests me, and I want to share that interest with you. Let me show you the wonders of outer space! Everything written on this site so far is a compilation of notes that I have gathered from astronomy courses or prior knowledge, except for news articles which include the references in the post. The sources for all the pictures used are under the page “References.”
So far, I’m summarizing the key aspects of astronomy, such as information on the solar system, universe, theories, galaxies, and stars as well as will exploring current events in astronomy, interesting facts, stories, etc. If you comment, I promise to respond and I hope you will enjoy astronomy! I will also gladly answer questions if you wish to ask or take any requests for posts. I also have another blog called “The Writ of Imagination,” where I post my poetry, art, and writings. Thank you for visiting “The Cosmos!”
