Dr. Beth A. Brown was an astrophysicist who worked at the Goddard Space Flight Center.

Brown was born on July 15, 1969, in Roanoke, Virginia. As a child, she had a passion to learn more about astronomy and science. She enjoyed watching Star Trek, Star Wars, and shows involving anything pertaining to outer space.

She graduated as valedictorian of her class and set her eyes on attending Howard University in Washington, D.C. While at Howard, she was involved in the marching band and often participated in summer internships at the Goddard Space Flight Center, gaining experience and research.

After learning of her interest in becoming an astronaut, one of her professors encouraged her to research the requirements to become an astronaut and be in outer space. She discovered that her near-sighted vision would hurt her chances of becoming an astronaut. However, Brown did not give up her dreams.

She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Howard, receiving a B.S. in Astrophysics in 1991 and remaining at the university for another year in the physics graduate program. At that point, she then decided to attend the University of Michigan, entering the doctoral program in the Department of Astronomy. Brown was the first black woman for receive a Ph.D. from the Department of Astronomy at the University of Michigan.

After receiving her doctorate, Dr. Brown returned to Goddard as a National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council postdoctoral research associate. In that position, she continued her thesis work on X-ray emission from galaxies. When the post-doc position ended, she became an employee of Goddard and worked as an astrophysicist. She worked within the center’s National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC), which is a part of the Space Science Data Operations Office. She also co-authored several articles on the Crab Nebula and X-ray emission from early type galaxies. Dr. Beth Brown died on October 5, 2008.

    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any
    ideas or suggestions? With thanks

    My developer is trying to convince me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am
    anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
