I loved this show!
19 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So glad to find others who loved this show, too. No one I ever asked remembered the show. I found it inspiring as well. I was all psyched by science and space, too, and at the time wanted to be "the first woman geologist on the moon." I understand that position has not been filled, but I probably won't make it now ;-) I was in a science club in Niagara Falls, where Bell Labs tested their rocket belt. We were scheduled to see one of those tests, although I think the day we went it was postponed and we missed it.

Kudos to all of you who went on to pursue your dreams. Mine changed to the field of psychology, and I now work with adults who have AD(H)D as a coach. Many people who have ADD are the very ones who have become the adventurers and entrepreneurs, etc., who make a difference in the world and inspire us. It is very gratifying work.
