I used to belive that if you travelled up the outer space, you would in the end come up from the water at a beach in annother universe
I used to believe that my parents once took me to the moon on vacation. We piloted our own spacecraft, and I was very proud over this accomplishment. A great dissapointment when the teachers and kids in kindergarden didn't believe me....
My grandmother had a swimming pool. She told me that if we went swimming at night, and it was a full moon, we could get a moon tan. I asked her if that were true, why didn't they sell moonscreen?
When I was little I always saw a 'woman in the moon', not a man. When other people would talk about the man in the moon I thought they were tricking me or being mean to the woman by calling her a man. I still see a woman in the moon.
When I was very young I was warned not to look at the sky during an upcoming solar eclipse. If I did, I would instantly go blind. I made a blindfold from an old tee shirt and gave it to my father to use while driving his car to work that day.
i thought that the sun was using batteries,and every time the sun was gone( at night)i thought Jesus changed the batteries..i think i was about 3-4 years old
I used to get really worried if I could see the moon out during the day, like a few hours before sundown. I thought that it would use up all its light during the day and not have enough light to shine through the night.
When I was a child, I believed that the sun turned into the moon at night and that the moon became the sun during the day.
I use to believe that the stars at night were peep holes and people in heaven were looking down through them to check on us here on earth!
I used to believe, when we drove home at night that when you could see the moon, he was following us home and even once I thought he winked at me.
As a child I used think if I jumped too high on a trampoline I'd be sucked up into outer space.
I never knew that the moon revolved around the earth until I was in my early thirties...and only then, because I noticed
one night that the moon had moved. I must have missed that day of school.
During an Eclipse (while I was at primary school) our head teachertold us that one day the Sun would run out and it would always be this dark. This led to a great deal of crying, believing it was likely to happen very shortly, if not now.
I used to believe that we lived inside the earth instead of on it and that rockets headed for space had to break through the "top" of the earth first.
When I was very young my Grandfather told me how the moon was made of Green Cheese. My evil older sister told me how the moon was important to life everywhere, and if it wasn't here we would all die. She also told me everytime I ate cheese from earth, I was taking it away from the moon, and if I ate too much cheese, the world would colapse. She was always mean.
My 7 year old daughter was watching the news with me when they mentioned that the Mir Space Station would be "crashing down tonight". She was almost hysterical, certain that it was going to fall directly on her bed.
I used to believe that sattelite dishes were used to shot down falling meteors that fell to earth.
a friend of mine once told me that the universe was infinite. When i asked him to elaborate his explantation he told me that if i just kept thinking about it my head would explode. i took him completely seriously and during science lessons would sometimes burst into tears at being forced to contemplate space.
When I was a child, riding in a car at nighttime, I would occasionally see a full moon. I believed it was a bathroom ceiling light fixture. I still feel that way.
When I was a child I believed that the atmosphere was really a dome with a handle on it that could be lifted off at any moment. I would lie on the grass, look up into the sky, and wonder if God would see me looking up at him when he lifted the dome off the Earth.
