As a kid I wanted to be an astronaut (yes, that’s the reason I always draw these space-things). Then I went to highschool and discovered you actually had to be great at science, physics and mathematics. Yikes. Another dream down the drain.
Thank god for people like André Kuipers to give people like me the next best thing, the opportunity to see space through his eyes. This video NASA made from the photographs he and his colleagues made just gives me the goosebumps everytime. And my favorite bits aren’t even seeing the polar lights or comet Lovejoy, but seeing the earth with parts of the ISS, like you’re actually sitting in the spacestation yourself. Amazing!
This song is currently on repeat since I decided to join this year’s NaNoWriMo to practise my writing again. What better subject to write about than space? Well, it’s not really about space, but about a man who thinks he’s an astronaut. I mean, why not? We all have dreams, don’t we? What’s was your childhood dream?
