If The Universe Is Infinite – ghostofgatsby

For as long as Smith can remember, he’s always wanted to go to space. His family lived outside Cape Canaveral, and he can vividly remember sitting on his dad’s shoulders, watching the first of the Mars Expedition rockets launch into space.
“I’m gonna be a spacemun when I grow up!” He exclaimed. “I’m gonna be the best space pilot Mars has ever seen!”
His dad had laughed, but encouraged him. “Maybe one day, son.” He said. “Maybe one day you’ll be living up there, among the stars.”
