Forgot to mention, go check out the eclipse. Pretty darn cool.
I was a fiend for all things space related when I was a kid. (And dinosaurs. And superheroes . . . Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern).
I had a poster of the solar system, a globe, a telescope, star charts, you name it. I'd go watch meteor showers in the dead of night, eclipses, look at the planets, all of that.
That said, I didn't want to be an astronaut. But I would have liked to have been on Star Trek.
Anyhoo . . .
