“Science is cool. I love playing video games, baseball, and riding my bike, and science lets me understand all of these things and much more. When I grow up I want to be the first professional Baseball playing astronaut. My greatest heroes are Neil Armstrong (first person to walk on the moon), Dr. Peter Diamandis (founder of the X Prize), and Anousheh Ansari (first private female astronaught). I love Quantum Quest because it takes you on an atomic space adventure!”
