Every little boys dream would be to fly on a rocket or build a rocket one day. The fascination between children and rockets dates back to the early years when kids looked up to the sky and wanted to go exploring. Those thirsts for the adventure always excite children especially adventures that involve exploring space because there is so much of it. You could blame the media for that as they always seem to glorify space travel but the children don’t realize that and think it is simple so they perform dangerous stunts that involve fireworks and fire to try and build rockets or spaceships.
The children who get past that rocket phase and still maintain a solid interest in it will still have a long way to go. It is a very complex and complicated machine to understand with many 3-Dimentional architectural designs to study from and text books to learn off by heart. Some of them want to be pilots, some of them want build them and some just want to understand the science behind it. Whichever they choose to pursue it will be an intense and grueling task. Most children won’t take them seriously because it is considered to be a child’s dream or a bedtime story. Some kids lose passion for it or get distracted by other things or get de-motivated because other kids were constantly making fun of their so called childish dreams. If they can break through all these barriers and still want to be involved in spaceships then at least they have overcome the easiest part, most likely. The selection process for these kinds of careers are almost impossible to get through, in other words, you really have to be special and the cream of the crop. If you want to become a pilot, they test your mind, physicality and sometimes both at the same time while being in a pressure situation. If you want to become a builder you really have to excel in the field and know as much as anyone that is in competition with you and more. If you merely just have an interest in it then will expect you to be an innovator and come up with creative ideas on how to improve the rockets.
After you have fully mastered the art of 3D architectural drawings and have gone through the grueling training of being a pilot or whichever field you chose. If you are fortunate enough to be selected then you should be proud for living your childhood dream.
