I remember in grade 2 I think, a female teacher held up a, what at the time was a photo of Mars, a red planet. that was when I wanted to know more. But, unfortunately, because space or anything related to it was not mentioned at school at all until we watched the Landing on the moon, when I was in high school, that I didn't even think about it. I loved every second of it watching the Moon Landing on the television, here in Melbourne, Australia. It was too late then for me. I just wished we had teachers who taught more on space. I think many schools need fun and entertaining teachers in science and maths. Star Trek is what kept me interested for the rest of my life. Then all that has followed, especially now with Space X, and Elon Musk.
