Isn’t it interesting that so many children collectively dream of one day being an astronaut? I join the ranks of that “stock” child dreamer and sincerely hope Elon Musk (and company) can find an affordable way to journey into space. Until then, embracing NASA’s photographers and keeping my dreams alive will have to suffice. Oh, and getting to write this show certainly helped the cause!
