FEMALE SPEAKER: I always wanted to be an astronaut when I was a little girl. I was seven years old. I applied to NASA and told them that I wanted to be an astronaut in their program, and they were very nice and sent me this nice letter back, but they did send me all the application forms and everything in this big thing. And for a little seven year old to get a big envelope with everything, it was just terrific.

I, you know, of course, didn't qualify, but that's okay. They still congratulated me, and then two months later, I got my Social Security card in the mail, not even asked for. So I knew I was on the record and that maybe they were going to take me after all later on. That's it.
