> Carolyn Shoemaker started her astronomical career in 1980, at age 51, searching for Earth-crossing asteroids and comets at California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, and the Palomar Observatory, San Diego, California.

Was she a late bloomer! I am about the age that she was when starting her astronomy career. This gives me immense hope that an entirely new (and possibly successful) chapter of my life can be started now.

Good luck to you!
