Astronomy trumps Sharks and Dinosaurs
This one’s just for posterity. A week or so ago, my 6 year old daughter completed her first ever school project. Her subject of choice was the origin of the universe. Needless to say there was not one right answer, but she’s darn interested in explaining to me (and anyone within earshot) that our sun is one of billions of other stars, and that we live in the Milky Way galaxy. Sadly, that was news to my Mom.
Personally I spent my elementary years doing projects on basically two things: sharks and dinosaurs. But hey, astronomy is a-ok with me too.
