Love when two worlds collide in a child’s mind, so easy for a child, so hard for us adults.
Yesterday we went to the Aquarium. Luke’s favorite area was the shark tank where you can touch the bamboo and hammerheads. There is a person telling you facts about the sharks while you touch. One of the facts that stuck in his mind was that the sharks can hear for a distance of one mile underwater.
Today Luke built a robotic arm to add to his rocket ship (sometimes it is a Delta 5 and sometimes it is a Space Shuttle) He did the whole thing by himself, cutting the cardboard with his wood saw.
After liftoff I overheard this one tidbit
“Endeavor is now one mile above the surface of the earth where the sharks can still hear us”
It doesn’t get much better than that.
