DescriptionAs a boy growing up in a northern rural town, he loved the stars. Playing street hockey he would always be stuck in goal, and often caught off guard while star-gazing at the twinkling skies. Every time the play was at the other end, he would look up and study dimensions, distribution, motion, composition, and energy of celestial bodies. He soon had the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences such as the very game he was playing in. Much to his teachers surprise the boy suddenly had a keen interest in science class, particularly the study of Astronomy. Applying Sir Isaac Newtons Laws of Motion, the boy soon knew how to react to the velocity and trajectory of the puck with precise efficiency and speed. Now as a rising young star in the nets his teammates never questioned his methods. As the national anthem would play the Astronomer would look up to the ceiling of the arena, imagine the stars, and with a twinkle in his eye...he was ready.
