    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.

    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,

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


    And included a ton of cool space swag.


    Along with some photos of Mars.


    And a very cool picture of the Curiosity Rover.


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