As a child, I’ve always wanted to be an Astronaut. I have this fascination with the heavenly bodies. The sky, clouds, planets, stars, sun, moon, and everything in the Milky Way and beyond.
I look up every day and night and see what painting the sky has to offer. It is such a joy to see a different painting above. Different colors, different patterns every day. What a great artist orchestrate such timeless art above.
Today, I saw the news about the Dear Moon Project and that they are giving everyone an equal opportunity to be in the 8 crew that will join them for the initial flight in 2023! This could be my chance to fly to the moon and back! That will be such an out-of-this-world experience, literally and figuratively!
I sent my application to the pre-registration and was sent an email that the selection process will commence on March 15, 2021.
Actually, a few years back I also filed an application to the MARS One Mission but the project was folded. I was told I was the only Filipina applicant! OMG! It would have been such a great opportunity to be selected even just for training at NASA!
Anyway, here I am shooting for the stars, I mean, to the moon and back hoping and dreaming I can fly up there and play among the stars and see the Earth through the moon’s perspective. Oh my, goosebumps as I write this!
So far, there are about 500 thousand pre-registered applicants already. I am surprised the Philippines is not on the Top 10 applicants! If you want to try your luck and maybe put the Philippines on the Top 10 then pre-register now at dearmoon.earth Good luck to us! Pero sa totoo lang mas bagay sha saken hahaha dear moon dot earth ! Haha!
