    Hey there, my name is Derek and I'm currently studying for my major in Robotic Engineering and minor in Astronomy. I look forward to some constructive discussions and hopefully we can all learn a thing or two :)

    Welcome to PF!

    How are your two interests connected? Are you thinking of building a remote controlled telescope?

    Heh, something like that. I think space exploration and robotics are gonna be close friends in the future. Electro-mechanical systems can operate in places that would be incredibly dangerous and/or unfeasible for humans to work. Just think of the tech that goes into crafts like the ISS or the Mars rovers; definitely an area to be expanded upon in the coming decades.
