Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

7 year-old Dexter wants to be an astronaut when he grows up; so, he wrote NASA a letter about taking a trip to Mars. This is the heart-melting letter he wrote to them: "Dear nasa, my name is dexter I heard that you are one sending 2 people to mars and I would like to come but I'm 7. So I can't. I would like to come in the future. What do I have to need to do to become an astronaut? Thank you Dexter" Being an awesome organization, NASA sent him a letter back.

The original letter 7 year-old Dexter wrote to NASA.

NASA's awesome response.

They sent a sticker and bookmark back with the letter.

Pictures of Mars they sent back.

Pictures of the Mars Curiosity Rover included in the letter as well.

The future astronaut, happy with his treasures.

We hope someday Dexter makes it to Mars. He has earned it. Source
