A Tale of Two Galaxies and Billions of Years

April 27th, 2015
Dayton Martindale

Dayton Martindale, a senior who receives his bachelor's degree in astrophysical sciences this year, doesn't want to be a scientist. He wants to be the person scientists need to help bring their research before the public. Martindale wants to help the average person understand the importance and influence of the work that occurs in the laboratories they'll never see, and that comes out of the fields they'll never study. He wants to be a science writer. "I realized that if presenting science to the public is what I'm more excited about, why not do that?"

Martindale will begin the master's program in science and environmental journalism at the University of California-Berkeley in the fall.
