Welcome back on the bus! This episode we have astronomer and all around adrenaline junky, Patrick Wiggins. Why adrenaline junkie? Because when we first met him, he was jumping out of an airplane. By day, jumping out of airplanes is what Patrick does, but by night, when the sun goes down, he heads over to the Stansbury Park Observatory Complex; where he has made some notable discoveries over the past few years: three supernovae and several planets outside of our own galaxy.
Patrick has spent thousands of hours staring up into the sky and he doesn't just do it with any ordinary telescope. Patrick has access to the largest amateur optical telescope in the world. Check out pictures of this beauty here.
