I have always been interested in the study of space. I remember that we learned about the planets one day in third grade and from then I was hooked (even though I never officially studied the solar system again until I was in college)!
My friend introduced me to the movie “Space Camp” when I was 10 years old and after that we would set up our own shuttle “cockpit” and re-enact the mission from lift-off to landing. My fascination with all aspects of space only grew as I got older and I continued to learn as much as I could about astronomy, the planets, and all aspects of human space flight.
