NASA Shines Like a Star in Response to 7-Year-Old Requesting a Trip to Mars (PHOTOS)Meredith Carroll
There are few small children who don’t toy with the idea of pursuing a career as an astronaut. So many stars and planets to see, so little time.
Seven-year-old Dexter would like to be an astronaut. Specifically, he’d like to explore Mars. However, unlike Veruca Salt who wants an Oompah Loompah now, Dexter gets that, at 7, it’ll be a while before he gets his shot. But that didn’t stop him from writing to NASA anyway and asking them to keep him in mind for future exploratory excursions.
