It is sad to me that we have a generation of children where so few of them dream to one day be astronauts. I am surprised by how few of them even know that there really is such a thing. Has our amazing world of cinematography actually blurred the line between science and science fiction so well that students now think that everything about “Space” is CGI and only possible in the movies?
NASA seems to be entering a new era of exploration, and we should do what we can to educate and inspire our students to the reality of what is actually possible. Even possible for them. Below are just a few NASA infographics that I think could spark the fire for some future astronauts. Lots more are available here.
