I’ve been glued to my television for the last few Sunday nights as I watched When We Left Earth. As you may know, I’m a bit of a science enthusiast (read: “enginerd”), and as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the manned space-flight program and just about everything NASA has ever done. I don’t really know why exactly, maybe it’s the appeal to my sense of adventure or my natural curiousity about how the world works, but I do know that ever since I saw the images of the first men landing on the moon, I knew that I wanted to be an astronaut. It’s one of the things that prompted me to get an engineering degree and is a natural extension to my love of flight.
One day I’ll get there. Until then, I’ve got my fingers crossed and I’m waiting for this show to come out on DVD.
