Amy is a spaceflight historian, author, YouTuber, and popular space personality. She holds a Bachelor's degree with combined honors in History of Science and Technology Studies and a Master's in Science and Technology Studies. Amy fell in love with spaceflight when she was seven years old; researching for a second grade project on Venus she was captivated by a cartoon image of two astronauts on the Moon. She needed to know how and why men walked on the Moon, and she never let that fascination wane. She found an outlet in her undergraduate studies started blogging in November 2010. Blogging turned into writing -- my first book, Breaking the Chains of Gravity, was released in 2015 -- and ultimately to my youTube channel, Vintage Space.
