I have never been a space nerd, I rarely gave the sky a second thought when I was younger. But now I really love reading and learning about the universe, but my mind is not hardwired to be able to process the higher levels of information required to work in that specific field of science. I can grasp the basic abstract theories in physics and such, but when it comes down the tiny details I lose it. I much prefer picking out constellations to hypothesizing about black holes and what not.
