I'm twenty and I'm crazy. Fangirl, (aspiring) scientist and writer. I'm at college in Boston right now, but New York will always be my home. Likes archaeology, astronomy, space travel, history, superhero comics, general science, the oceans, Star Wars, aviation, exploration/geography, mysteries and Disney. (Which is where my title comes from...)
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
P.S. My username is pronounced "K-eye yeeves"
Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be — we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others.
[Science] is distrusted not because of what it can do, but because people don’t understand how it does what it can do — and that absence of understanding, or misunderstanding, of the power of science is what makes people afraid. … Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean it’s bad for you — go figure out how it works! That’s why we need a scientifically literate electorate — so that when you go to the polls, you can make an informed judgment and you can draw your own conclusions rather than tune into a particular TV station to have your conclusions handed to you.
