My story

Jim Yanacek

December 10, 2012

Dear Dr. Tyson, In response to your question regarding what "sparked" my passion for space. I doubt that anything sparks a passion for space. This is something you are born with. Something you cannot ignore, something many people will not understand, but something those who do, live in wonderment and awe of our incredibly small part and place in the Universe. One day, we will find other residents of our Universe or they will find us. I regret that I will probably not live long enough to witness this event. I envy those people who will.
