Tip Our Hats: Space Cadets

As a former Space Camp attendee, I have to say that space dorks really rev my engine. How do you know if you're dealing with a space cadet? Well, odds are that he:
  • Has eaten freeze dried ice cream
  • Geeks out when Nova or The Elegant Universe airs on PBS
  • Thinks that Neil deGrasse Tyson is, like, the awesomest guy ever
  • Affixed glow-in-the-dark stars to his ceiling at some point in his youth
  • Has a space-themed screensaver
  • Is pumped that Carl Sagan's Cosmos is now available to watch on Hulu
  • Thinks that 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the best movies ever made
  • Has a strong opinion about Pluto's controversial status as a planet
  • Would take you to the planetarium on your a third date
We tip our hat to you, space cadets, for sharing our passion for the universe, literally. We, too, share your enthusiasm for all things astronomical.

Speaking of astronomical things, if any of you space dorks out there want to take me on a date to the planetarium, drop a line to me at anna@shmittenkitten.com. Let's gaze at the outdoors, indoors, together.

Um, I'm all about space cadets, but dude, the planetarium at the Franklin Institute SUCKS. SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS. Biggest disappointment of 2oo9. And I've already been dumped. Twice. Via email. Sayin' . . .
