As a child, have you ever dreamed of going to Space? Well, your dream is not unrealistic or impossible.
Two months ago on Saturday, May 30, 2020, NASA and SpaceX jointly launched two American astronauts, Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station.
Apparently, this was the first space launch since the space shuttle was retired back in 2011, after the a launch attempt on May 27 was unsuccessful due to some weather challenges.
Among many other things, this space mission inspires us to dream higher than we have ever done. It gives us hope that humans can conquer Space with modern tools of Science and Technology.
And that further promotes the importance of STEM education for our young people in this 21st century driven mostly by the technological dynamics of the 4th industrial revolution
