Peeping Toms of the Atmosphere

Dayum, I love the solar system. As a kid, it was the only part of Physics’ classes I could tolerate. The stars, the planets, the moons and the sheer vastness of space has had me enthralled since I sported invisible braces.

And now, with the ISS and their Earth-Watching cam, I can look down at Earth as though I were above it! Woohoo. I loved learning about the solar system, but I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t smart enough to become an astronaut and neither did I really want to be one. Flying makes me nervous, so, yeah… blasting through the atmosphere just isn’t for me! Here, I can be an armchair astronaut, my favorite sort!
