Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Harald Schenk My love affair with astronomy began in postwar Berlin. With the skies blacked out, it appeared that the Milky Way was close enough to touch. During the following years, I have tried to pass on this feeling of "kinship to the stars" to others.

Born in Berlin, Germany. Received BA in Science Communication from UW-Green Bay in 1991. MS in Space Studies from U. of N. Dakota in 2000. Currently teaching a course called "Frontiers of Space" at Lakeland College.

I teach Astronomy Lab at the University of Wisconsin - Sheboygan, and "Frontiers of Space" at Lakeland College.
