Call me a dreamer, but looking into the nights sky and to see all the stars is so fascinating. As a teenager growing up, my bedroom window was a velux roof window, so I could lay in my bed and gaze right up on a clear night into the universe. A time of reflection and wunder. A time of existential thoughts and challenges.

Over the last few year, I have had interest in what the ISS (International Space Station) has been doing. I used to track its orbit and try on occasion to see if I can hear anything via radio.

I have had 3 opportunities at my place or work to speak to real astronauts and to hear their stories of space and its environment. Truly fascinating to say the least.
