Share your space life goals

When I was a kid and got my first look through a telescope, I saw Saturn with its rings and couldn’t believe my eyes. From then on, I continued pursuing space adventures. I visited planetariums, went to public lectures, read books, watched documentaries. I road-tripped to the Arizona meteor crater and saw with my own eyes how dramatic impacts can be. Last year I was lucky enough to witness a launch and to feel the power and grace of the rocket as it left our planet. Throughout my life, these experiences have deepened my appreciation for space. 

Like me, you have done things that have inspired you to learn about other worlds, to gain deeper insight into our place in the cosmos, and to advocate with a community of space supporters to make more exploration happen.
