The first Mars astronaut has probably already been born, even if it wasn’t that long ago. He or she could be in Atlanta at one of Fernbank Museum’s planetarium shows.
It could be 17-year-old Kristen Baker, who will be attending Georgia State University in 2017 to study astronomy. It could be 9-year-old Everett Glover who wants to be the first person to take selfies on Mars.
Regardless, both were in attendance at the Fernbank Planetarium’s “From Earth to the Universe” show, along with scores of other families. The interest in space exploration isn’t dying down any time soon.
