      My greatest achievement was being able to work with the Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble telescope was the one I always heard about when I was growing up, and has provided us with some amazing photos (http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/) so working with it was a dream come true.

      The data I was working with also led to my first ever science publication (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1511.07439v2.pdf). The results were interesting as it told us a lot about how systems like the one named, called CSS120422:111127+571239, formed, and how they will end 🙂
