Description

From distant ancestors who gazed jealously at birds in flight, to today's modern scientists who send robots to explore other planets, the thought of flight has been with humans the entire time. When I think of NASA, I feel like it has gathered imagination and made it into an incredible but concrete reality. As I consider current projects on the NASA web site, I am speechless at how our species came to develop such incredible technologies. My poem is about NASA’s limitless possibilities that can be achieved.

From distant ancestors who gazed jealously at birds in flight, to today's modern scientists who send robots to explore other planets, the thought of flight has been with humans the entire time. When I think of NASA, I feel like it has gathered imagination and made it into an incredible but concrete reality. As I consider current projects on the NASA web site, I am speechless at how our species came to develop such incredible technologies. My poem is about NASA’s limitless possibilities that can be achieved by humans in the future. I have no doubt that the future flight projects will continue to expand the boundaries of human exploration, enabling our descendants to step off of the "pale blue dot," known as the earth. Looking at history, it seems that to be human is to be curious and to explore. NASA's projects will enable future generations to expand their lives to the unknown (but soon to be known) worlds in outer space.
