Jennifer German is currently a mother of 2, a lead software engineer at a SAAS startup, and a hopeless space geek. She first became interested in 2nd grade while her class learned about the Challenger mission (before the explosion). She remembers being out in a corn field in the wee hours of the night looking for Hailey's comet. She's followed Hubble since it launched when she was 11, despite not having the internet, and followed the construction of the International Space Station since she did her Physics term paper on enclosed eco-systems in High School. She interned at Biosphere 2 for the best Summer of her life during college. She builds every space exploration inspired Lego set she gets. She tells everyone who'll listen about the newest planetary news. She points out constellations and passes on tips for identifying stars, and not stars, to any who ask. She has set up a library telescope on her street a number of times and asked neighbors if they want to see the planets with her. Now she's working on sharing her space hobby with larger, pre-organized, groups.
