The Masters of Science Fiction

Reading classic science fiction from Asimov, Heinlein and others made me think there was a future in space. I first discovered SF when I was about 7 years old, and quickly devoured all I could find. I wanted to be an astronaut--I even have a pamphlet NASA sent me when I was 12 telling me how I could become one! That didn't work out, but my passion for space continues.
