Putting faith in the universe -- The Editors Interview Brother Guy Consolmagno, S.J.
How did you end up being both an astronomer and a Jesuit brother?
I was a Sputnik kid. I started school the year Sputnik went up, and I was in high school the year people landed on the moon. How could I not be in love with space? Since I went to a Jesuit high school in Detroit, I came to admire the Jesuits. I chose Boston College because it was a Jesuit school and I figured, "Maybe I'll be a Jesuit."
