What about outer space, being an astronaut and space travel fascinated you as a kid?
Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, I didn't have the luxury of 24-hour cable TV and barely had 96 hours of electricity a month. But when I stumbled upon a book about the solar system and the universe in school, I could not stop dreaming about space travel and I even attempted to launch a couple of rockets (http://www.wernextgeneration.org/about/founders-story/). I just wanted to be in the dark space among the stars.
Taylor mentioned his passion for space travel and I believe most of us have had these dreams too. What is/was your childhood story/encounter and drive for wanting to exploring the outer space?
