How I decided I won't let myself be ignorant on space anymore

It was 1980 and I was 14 when I first saw the attached image of Ganymede by Voyager 2 on the July 16, 1979 issue of the Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine. I still remember my exact thoughts: "Do I have the right not to know anything about this?", Then I saw the famous Voyager 1 Saturn family montage and that was it!
