When I was around 3 years old, I watched the movie The Right Stuff with my dad. By the time I was 4, I had watched it so many times I could recite most of the movie from memory (even the swears, much to my mom's chagrin). Every little boy dreams of going to space, and I was no different. I always said that I was going to be an Astronaut one day.
As I got older, I realized that the chances are slim, but this dream was always in the back of my mind.
Even now, as I prepare to graduate from university and enter the working world as an Army officer, this dream is still alive and well. And now it could be a reality.
