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,

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.
