Nasa launched a space probe this morning and it's headed for the sun. I also learned that the sun is 93 million miles away from earth. It's hard to imagine something so far away being so bright. This space probe could be the first to ever touch the sun. Scientists say this has been 60 years in the making. The spacecraft is car-sized and will be on its mission for about 7 years. One of my dreams when I was younger was to work at Nasa. Writing about this today actually has brought back those dreams again. I wonder if an executive from Nasa will read this someday and hire me to help them with mission control?
