This Is What Happens When A 7-Year-Old Asks NASA How To Get To Mars

This once again proves that astronauts are the coolest people around.

1. A seven-year-old boy named Dexter wrote this very adorable letter asking NASA how he could get to Mars.

Dear NASA,

My name is Dexter. I heard that you are sending two people to Mars and I would like to come but I’m seven and a half and I can’t. I would like to come in the future, what do I need to do to come an astronaut.

Thank you,
Dexter

3. And proving that NASA is the best, they wrote him back!

4. And included a ton of cool space swag.

5. Along with some photos of Mars.

6. And a very cool picture of the Curiosity Rover.

7. And even more adorably, according to a NASA employee on Reddit, Dexter’s letters are pinned up in cubicles around the office!
