Pull request
I made some small changes to the documentation


This was the first time I tried to work on non-student opensource project, so I aimed for something small and simple (exactly like documentation). The repo was about AI recognition of pictures of "space object". It sounded nerdy so I like it.
They posted an issue to extend the document for more human-known "space object". I have to read a little bit about space, there are many type of objects so I only add something that regular people care about. I also read their whole document and fixed some misinformation. My pull request got approved one day after submission and they thanked me for correcting mistake.
In the future, I will probably enjoy documentation but only if the topic are interesting enough (or nerdy enough). Otherwise, I would prefer more coding.
