The original letter from a child to NASA. Children's dreams


Children's dreams do not understand borders. They are huge, like the galaxy. More so, like infinite space. Like Jack's dream of one day working at NASA and becoming a Guardian of the Galaxy.

Nasa published a job offer and among the thousands of candidates, they received a very special one, that of a boy of only 9 years old, who tenderly said why they should hire him. Here is the original letter from a child to NASA and why it is so important that children continue to dream.

Among the thousands of applications for a job (whose salary is $ 187,000), NASA received this letter, handwritten and signed by 9-year-old Jack Davis. In it, the little boy explained why they should hire him. Without a doubt, the most original letter they received:

'My name is Jack Davis and I would like to apply for the job of Planetary Protection Officer. I may only be nine years old, but I think I can fit into this job. One of the reasons is that my sister says that I am an alien, especially since I have seen everything about space and alien movies that I could have seen. I have also seen the Marvel Agents of Shield series and the movie 'Men in Black'. I am fantastic at video games. I'm young so I can learn to think like aliens. '

Sincerely, Jack Davis (Guardian of the Galaxy) - Fourth Grade

The letter reached the hands of James L. Green, director of Planetary Science himself. NASA decided to answer the little boy:

'Dear Jack. I heard that you are a 'Guardian of the Galaxy' and that you are interested in being the Planetary Protection Officer at NASA. It's fantastic! Our Planetary Protection Officer position is really cool and it's a very important job. It's about protecting the earth from tiny microbes when we bring back samples from the moon, asteroids, and Mars.

It's also about protecting other planets and satellites from our germs as we responsibly explore the solar system. We are always looking for brilliant future scientists and engineers to help us, so I hope you study hard and do very well in school. We hope to see you at NASA one of these days. '

James L. Green - Director of Planetary Science at NASA

Dreams may or may not come true. But they are important. More than important: indispensable. Dreams are an engine that move us forward. To be hopeful. To believe. To fight and to persevere. So, it is essential that we nurture children's dreams. How?:

1 - Listen to your son when he tells you what he wants to do, what he thinks and what he feels.

2 - Try to answer their questions. Look for answers to their whys. Ask him others for him to try to answer. In this way, you will be stimulating their curiosity. 'Why doesn't the moon fall? Do you know how ants communicate? '

3 - Ask your son from time to time, what would you like to do when you grow up, how do you see your future. You may change your mind every week, but at least it helps to imagine the future.

4 - Believe in your son. Believe in your possibilities. If he tries, and you support him, he can get it.

5 - Teach him the importance of two essential values: effort and perseverance. They will be basic pillars that will help you to conquer your dreams.
