Who didn’t want to be an astronaut when they grew up? Astronauts are the primary reason children know how to count backwards – it’s always the most fun to pretend to blast off in a rocket ship! But what if you could do that for real? For starters, you wouldn’t venture out into the open road without having a driver’s license, so you should probably know your way around space if you want to go exploring out there as well. Everything about 5th grade astronomy was awesome from experiments in science class to any time you got within 100 feet of a planetarium, which was a lot.
