Dustin's interests include astronomy, computers, internet, airplanes,
space exploration, NASA, engineering of any kind.
DS: Just starting out, right now I use a pair of 10X50mm binoculars.
AAS: What was your first experience that attracted you to astronomy?
DS: When I was 10 or so, I walked outside one winter night and just happened to look up, and saw the constellation Orion. From then on, I've been hooked.
AAS: How about your family members; spouse? kids? significant other?
DS: I live with my parents (I'm 14, 15 in July), both know nothing about astronomy. Also, I have a 16 year old sister, she thinks astronomy is pointless. Isn't that sad? *grin*
AAS: Can you tell us a little about your formal education?
DS: I'm currently in 9th grade at Central High School, and have a 3.86 GPA.
AAS: Do you have any pets?
DS: Yes. Two Boxer Bulldogs, and 4 cats of mixed breed.
AAS: Where do you work? If you're retired, what was your occupation?
DS: Student. I plan to attend Auburn University in the fall of 2001 and major in Aerospace Engineering. I would like to work in the private aerospace industry.
AAS: What are your other hobbies?
DS: I enjoy working with model airplanes (radio control), and studying about space/astronomy.
AAS: What was your first or favorite car?
DS: I don't have a car yet (I do, however, have an awesome bike! *grin*). My favorite car is the Mitsubishi 3000GT.
AAS: Tell us about your favorite vacation.
DS: Just the usual...trips to the beach and Disney World every few years. Pretty fun, none the less.
AAS: Have you ever lived in some other part of the country or another country?
DS: No. I look forward to moving to Auburn in 2001, however.
I enjoy anything that involves science and math. Everything about those
subjects always seem to make sense to me, I guess that's why I excel in
career goal is to be an engineer, preferibly in the aerospace/aeronautical field. After I get a job after college, I would like to invest in a small
personal aircraft, so I can get away from reality on the weekends. But I still have 3 1/2 years of high school left, no reason to grow up fast, eh?
