When I was in third grade, I read in a science book that someday the sun would become a nova. I must have figured "someday" was imminent because would I lay awake night after night wishing that the sun would not explode and incinerate the Earth. The sun seems to be holding together so far...

I used to believe that the stars are actually star-shaped (like a pentagram or the star of david), and they only seemed dotlike since they are so far away.

I believed that we lived inside the earth, not on it. This was probably because there was a cartoon sticker on my cupboard of two rockets exploding through the surface of the earth. The image left me wondering just how space shuttles actually managed to burst through the earth's 'skin' to make it into space. Bizarre

one night, a few years ago, my mom and I were sitting outside and enjoying the starry night. My sister, who was about four or five at that time, came out to join us. All of a sudden, she gave a horrified scream and ran indoors. My mom went after her, puzzled as to what had suddenly startled her. My sister explained that when she looked up, all the astronauts in the sky were shining their torchlights at her! She was talking about the stars!

Until i was, like, 10, I never got the Uranus joke. I'd ask my mom, "Whats a nus? And why am I one?"

When I was around 8 I used to think about the enormity of the universe and have panic attacks, and sometimes nightmares (blind terror) when I thought about what we humans really are, and how we came into being. I wondered; was our universe just a crumb on the table of a giant. I was always being told off by my Dad for "having my head in the clouds", and forgetting things.

There is a star cluster called the Hyadees (pronounced "HIGH-uh-deez"), which makes up the bull's face in the constellation of Taurus, the bull. My niece, Heidi, when she was a child, thought it was her very own star cluster, because "Hyades star cluster" sounds quite similar to "Heidi's star cluster'

I used to think that the sunset was the Sun seperating into the millions of stars in the sky. The stars would, of course, recollect again at sunrise to make the Sun again.

I remember this making perfect sense in my head at the time too :o)

I used to believe that we live "in" earth instead of "on" earth and that asia and America were on opposite end inside a globe. When the rockets (Space Craft) went into space it actually created a hole in the earth.

I used to believe that one night, gravity would go away and everyone would float into outer space.

I also believed that if a comet hit us, the same would happen.

I use to believe that the sun and the moon were one object and just flipped around when day turned into night or night into day

I thought that the moon wasn't cheese, but quite possibly a cookie. I got this belief from watching Rugrats, where in a certain episode, the babies imagined themselves as dinosaurs and wanted to eat the moon, since it WAS a cookie. The way they showed it, the moon looked kinda tasty.

mmm... TASTY!!!

I used to believe that the sun and the moon were back to back and they turned around slowly at the appropriate time (thats why there was a sunrise and sunset)
