To the Stars!

Petra Bosse

December 2, 2012

What sparked my passions wasn't something as poetic as laying on the ground, looking at the stars, and wanting to know as much about them as I could, it was more that I would look up at them and want to be there. As a child I was instantly fascinated with the original Star Trek TV series and whole heartedly believed, then and now, that we are not alone in this vast universe. I could look up at the stars and envision the planets where life existed, and wonder if their lives were much like ours, and constantly wished I could go there. I dreamed of being an astronaut, which at that time was something girls didn't do, and longed to travel to those places. But of course reality took over and those dreams quickly faded, but not my passion to know what's out there.
