I Am Made of the Right Stuff #space #marsone
At only 5 ft in height, I'm 5 cm too short to apply for the Mars One mission. Actually, I probably don't meet many of their other astronaut requirements. Sucks, doesn't it? To be told you're not good enough for something because of your physical capabilities. To be told, you're not the right stuff. I'd love to have had the chance to just apply to be on the first manned mission to Mars. I'm honest enough with myself to know I probably wouldn't have made it past the first round, but you never know.
However, that doesn't mean the opportunity to go to space will never happen. It doesn't mean I'll always be too short.Who knows what the future holds? What advances in space flight there will be in my lifetime. I could be the right stuff for the right mission.
Am I crazy for still believing I have a chance? Or is it that belief in our dreams that drives us towards achieving those impossible goals? What do you think? What are your crazy, impossible dreams?
