If I had my pick of jobs, I would definitely become an astronaut or a mission controller for a satellite voyage like Cassini to study Saturn. Like so many space geeks growing up in the 70s, Star Trek certainly had its influence on me.
I can still hear the echoes in my head calling to boldly go where no one has gone before. It inspired me so much that I begged my parents for a telescope and received one for Christmas when I was a kid.
I can still remember lying on my grandmother’s living room floor on a very hot July day watching the first moon landing on her black and white TV. I can also recall my Italian grandfather saying, I don’t believe it because it’s just Hollywood. Born in 1912 he came from a different world.
As technology advances, space exploration will become more common place and a career in intergalactic exploration will become one of the most exciting jobs out there.
