“Dreams may have something to do with humans never being satisfied, which is why we go exploring in the first place”
–Don Pettit.

Being ranked fourth of all NASA astronauts for time in space, Pettit is kept busy conducting experiments, creating science videos, and even planting zucchini that’s out of this world…. literally. Read the whole story on his space dreams here.

  1. This Pettit quotes reminds me of one attributed to Thomas Jefferson where he says,

    “Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing.”

    This goes hand in hand with what Pettit is saying, Jefferson simply substitutes “doing” for “dreams.” Great quote!
