Reaching for Mars

Dani Weigand

Last month we were contacted by the Utah chapter of Make-a-Wish regarding a little boy named Logan who’s wish to go to Space Camp was being granted. The organization surprised Logan with a special animated message in the Hansen Dome Theatre just before seeing Attack of the Space Pirates.

Soon Logan will be headed to Alabama to see what it’s like to train like a real astronaut. When I asked him if I could take his picture to share with our audience he responded, “Yes, but I want to take it on Mars…I want to be the first person to walk on Mars.”

Sometimes big inspiration comes in small packages. I’m glad I got to shake Logan’s hand and think he’d make a fantastic astronaut.
