What makes a child wonder?

What makes a child wonder? The real Milky Way on a warm midwestern night? Knowing that Dejah Thoris was really up there waiting for John Carter? Asking questions that no one could answer such as "What is where space isn't?" All of these sparked more exploration - Arkady Darell, attempts at lens grinding, a subscription to Sky & Telescope and constant visits to library shelves numbered 523 in the Dewey Decimal System. These were the beginnings, however no one ever told me that the journey never ends - it only gets better!
