WIll You be a Famous Astronomer?

Have you ever dreamed of being a famous astronomer some day? It is possible you know. You could be gazing at the stars through your telescope, and blamo!, you make an astonishing discovery. Until that day comes, I've given you some great reading material about some of the greatest astronomers who ever lived. The people you'll meet on this page have helped humanity get a better understanding of the planet we live on and the Universe we're all a part of.

Without further adieu, let's meet them:

I'm sure I haven't mentioned every astronomer who has made a major contribution to the field of astronomy, so if I think of any, I will add them to the list.

Just imagine, maybe someday someone will be making their own famous astronomer page and your name will be on the list! It doesn't hurt to shoot for the stars sometimes :)
