yesterday i watched a dad try and park a space shuttle for 15 minutes as his son stood by waiting for his turn. once pops finally let him at it, the son tried a minute or two and gave up. dad hopped on the controls again. maybe it’s worth it to note that we were watching from the line. security should probably watch the parents in the children’s interactive space section of the denver natural history museum. looking around, it’s somewhat amusing to note the ratio of parents to kids using the actual exhibits. poor kids.

we watched the imax about the last repair of the hubble telescope and it makes me wonder why i never really tried to go to astronaut training. now all i need to do is go back and get my bachelor’s in engineering or biology, get 1000 flight hours in a jet aircraft (which presents a whole other list of requirements) and then pass their physical. at least there’s one easy step! maybe i’ll just get a tattoo apprenticeship and be a rafting guide instead.
