I'm Craig Levin. Welcome to my homepage!
I'm a writer and astronomer. Since the spring of 2006, I have maintained the website of the NASA HQ library. In my free time, I edit pages for Astronomy.FM, the Internet radio station for astronomical news & views. I edit The Meteor, the monthly newsletter of the Astronomical Society of Greenbelt. I was the secretary of the society from 2009 to 2011. Along with my wife, Elizabeth, & some of our friends, I volunteer at the Howard B. Owens Science Center, my county's science center. I write planetarium shows for the center. I've presented four shows & I'm working on a fifth. I'm a ticket agent & usher for the planetarium, too. I also demonstrate science experiments at the center.
My astronomical interests also include ethnoastronomy, the history of astronomy, & the use of binoculars in astronomy. I'm also interested in American science & space policy, pre-World War II amateur rocketry clubs, & nineteenth & early twentieth century science fiction & fantasy. For many years, I was involved in historical reenactment.
I earn my living as a library paraprofessional. I've worked at different kinds of workplaces, including colleges, federal agencies, law offices, & not-for-profits. Please see my resume if you'd like to know more about my work history.
