Ready for Blast-off

I’m writing this by way of introduction as Victoria Jaggard, the founder and curator of Breaking Orbit, heads to new frontiers (see her post below).  We met, most appropriately, at an event at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and quickly discovered a mutual fondness for rockets and astronomy.  I’m excited to be joining Breaking Orbit as an editor and contributor.

With a name like Luna, it’s hard not to have a connection with space.  I share a birthday with Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, and would be writing to you as Apollo Shyr if I were male.  Naturally I grew up with a poster of Andromeda on my wall and spent hours imagining ways to explore a black hole and live to tell the tale.

With Breaking Orbit, I hope we’ll keep expanding our community of space lovers and encourage others to join us in discovering the wonders of near and deep space.  Thanks, Victoria, for this opportunity and hello to everyone embarking on this voyage together.
