Now Hiring - Dreamers!
Dedicating my 500th tweet to our next generation of dreamers, scientists, daring explorers, and space travelers. NASA is now accepting applications for a new Astronaut class that will help us break the chains of Earth’s gravity and explore distant worlds.
“Some people see things as they are and ask ‘why’? I dream of things that never were and ask ‘why not’?”
Why not you?
Come join us for an adventure beyond your wildest dreams! Bring a sense of daring, a problem-solving mind, childlike dreams, and your toothbrush!
Love this photo from the Apollo 17 crew…the last ‘Earthrise’ witnessed by human eyes from another world. The crescent Earth rises…who will be the next to witness this…will it be you?
If we believe in our dreams of going back to our Moon and on to Mars in our lifetime, that means that those human faces that we’ll see back on the lunar surface and those first explorers to step foot on Mars are somewhere among us. Maybe a child in one of our school classrooms…maybe your child…maybe you…
