O used to think that we lived INSIDE the world; that the blue sky was the inside of a big hollow ball. I knew that "space" was all black and full of stars, and try as they might, my parents could not convince me that the blue sky was caused by the sunlight coming through a waterbased atmosphere. Come to think of it, that still kinda sounds bunky to me. :) And don't even asked me how I thought we GOT to outer space. I think I thought we launched rockets out little windows or something. It was a while before it clicked.
when i was 5 years old i thought that little elves lived on each star and use a candle to lit it up. and there were lots of elves on the moon they all hold hands and light the moon up with candles my mum was worried she took me to the hospital 3 times
I used to believe that the planet Earth just like other planets is far way from us in the sky where we see stars and we live on a place with a ground and trees and everything else
When my parents told me about the man on the moon I not only believed in him but actually thought I could see him and the craters I could see were what I reconned to be his face, They are a bit hazy and I sometimes thought I was getting him mad as it changed. I used to say mean things to the moon and decided I didn't like him.
When I was little I used to think of the night sky as a BIG blanket and the moon and stars where holes in the blanket and if you looked real close through the holes they called stars you could see shadowy figures going by.
I used to believe that beyond the visible limits of the sky there is a garden of wonders.In that garden everything good(chocolates,toffies etc) were available in limitless quantity.You had to take a rocket to reach that pIace.I thought that all the space explorers like Yuri Gagarin et all actually went to explore that garden & take a munch at the goodies.
I used to belive that if we could find the light switch that controlled the sun, we could control the world.
I used to think that whenever there was an eclipse and it was all over the news, the world was actually going to end. And I always was reliefed when it didn't and said that maybe next time they would. Nobody took the time to explain me that it was only temporary,
I used to think that stars are made by God for children to stop crying, to enjoy and they are our toys to make us happy and they do not twinkle but wave to us.
when i was 10, I used to believe that the moon was reachable for me using a knot.
When i was a little kid, i lived in Germany, and i always thought the moon as the other side of the Earth. Everyone would always talk about the US, and that's where i thought it was. Plus we learned about landing on the moon in school, and i really had no clear understanding of flying. Pretty stupid when i look back on it.
In childhood I used to belive that we, all human live inside the earth. There is giant hole on the top of the earth and we see the stars through that hole. I used to believe that all the Rockets to Moon had to pass through that hole to go to Moon.
i used to believe the atmosphere had a door and a code like in spaceballs and when spaceships went through it they could only go through that door.
When I was 8 I've read about black holes. Black hole sucks everything... I thought it's inside my toilet.
I remember being four or younger when I first came up with this.
It worried me that the universe was infinite - or rather, because 'infinite' was perhaps not in my vocabulary, it worried me that space should be black forever. Surely it couldn't just go on being black. Everything had an end, surely... although obviously the universe didn't stop, because what would be outside it? This was my solution. After space had stretched on for a long time and way, it stopped being black, and there was a kind of barrier. After that, it was white. Then it was probably brown. And then yellow. I don't remember the exact order after that, but I suppose I assumed that you could go on inventing colours infintely, or perhaps repeat a sequence of them infinitely, and that that would resolve the problem.
I was always interested in science. Somewhere I saw a textbook with a drawing of a cannon shooting a cannonball into orbit around the earth, to explain escape velocity. I was convinced that the moon had been shot out of a cannon to orbit the earth thereafter.
i used to believe that the sun and the moon were in the atmosphere of the earth...
I used to love to stare at the moon when I was younger. My mum told me if I point at the moon, my ear would drop off / be cut off.
I had visions of a moon man (obviously with a face like the moon) coming down and slicing off my ears with his moon knife.
I'm 22 now. I still won't point at the moon.
II used to believe as a child When I laid out under the stars at night that they made a noise when Twinkeling, for years I believed it..than one day someone told me it was Crickets... that stars did not make a noise....I could not believe it...!
I used to point the torch to the sky and belived if i waited long enough i would be able to see the light of my torch on the sky..... silly me.....
