Even though he is really young, what I really want my son to gain from this experience is the ability to think big and think outside of his normal point of view. Outer space is something that we don't see with our naked eyes on a daily basis. To study outer space requires using our imagination to think about what we can't sense directly. It challenges us to think beyond our individual daily realities.

When my son is older, my wife and I will take him to the observatory again and more often. Hopefuly he will be able to truly aim higher than the stars.
