Future Astronaut // Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex
Believe it or not, growing up, I wanted to be an astronaut. However, my math skills are not quite up to par. So instead of visiting space, I simply admire it from the safety of earth while wearing space themed clothing. This t-shirt was one of those rare finds, where I am pretty sure I bought the last one available, anywhere, and that makes me love it even more! (I did link something similar, below!)
These photos were taken at the Canberra Deep Space Center, here in Australia. The building itself was slightly underwhelming, but the drive out there and the giant satellite dishes made the trip worth it, in my mind. I felt like I'd stepped into a sci-fi movie, if only for a moment, and I even tried my hand at a moon walk. (Which did not turn out so well...)
While I may not be an astronaut now, I won't rule the option out...
What did you want to be when you were little?
