Observing the cosmos with a community of more than 121k observers.
💫 What is my passion for the cosmos?
The cosmos has inspired me with its paradoxical nature. When I started to learn about stars and their formation, I was inspired by how such energy-bursting operations can result from simple interstellar gas. As the gas compresses, it pulls the atoms together and finally results in a fusion reaction within a star core.
I have never realised that this must happen at any given moment with our sun.
Learning about this phenomenon inspired me to dive deeper into the subject. I got lost in the world of general relativity, quantum mechanics and the beginning of the universe. Far from this vast space that is our world must be the answer for everything. In some places where the laws of physics break and our modern understanding of everything broke. This is not the birth of a star, but its violent death, collapsing into one small space and forming a black hole.
These mysterious objects are what will someday give us the final answer, but until then, what I do is teach everything I know about space to inspire other people.
This way we can all, in the future, find the answer to those complicated questions as scientists.

Astronomy Picture of the Day is a format on my Instagram page where I pick a marvellous picture of our cosmos every day and share it with thousands of space enthusiasts all over the world.
We dive into what the images tell us, how they were made and what they teach us about the evolution of our universe. That’s what makes Observethecosmos so special. I bring the world of astronomy and astrophysics to the eyes of the whole world and this for 365 days a year.
