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.

I used to believe that each person/family in the world lived on a different planet in the solar system. My family and I, for example, lived on Earth, while my friend lived on the moon. Another friend of mine then, quite obviously, lived on Mars, and so on. I realised this was wrong when I noticed I was able to visit my friends at their houses without any help from NASA.

I have no idea if I formed this meme myself or some unknown person gave it to me. I thought that the "man in the moon" face was "deciphered" (ie. the craters' pattern was called a face) after Neil Armstrong fell in one of the moon craters and couldn't get out, and the rest of the astronauts had to come back to Earth without him, and so they called it a face posthumously in his honour.

When I was small, perhaps 4 or 5, I found an atlas with a fold-out picture of the solar system. I showed the Sun and the planets spaced about it, the asteroid belt between the Mars and the outer solar system, and so on.

I could not conceive how these things would be floating around out there, so I reasoned, since things fall on Earth, they must be falling out there too. Only they had to fall all at the same rate to stick together and still be a solar system. What they were falling toward I never defined.

I also thought there must have been balls of gravity to which the dust from interstellar space stuck to form the planets...in the same way lint sticks to tape when your mother dresses you up in uncomfortable clothes to go to a wedding and you played with the dog and now Mom has to get tape and take all the dog hair off your nice clothes.

I also remember being amazed to learn the Germans used the same numbers we do. Sneaky bunch, stealing our numbers.

For the longest time, I thought that when I saw the moon in the daytime, that what I was really seeing was the other side of the world. I assumed that was where the Chinese and Africans lived. Never occurred to me how to get there, though...

For quite a while, I believed that space shuttles could only go to the moon at night, because you can't see the moon during the day and therefore wouldn't be able to navigate your way to it.

My dad told me the moon was lit exclusively by lite reflected from the earth and believed it himself. I could never figure how a reflection could produce a crescent.

I use to (and still do) believe that somewhere in the universe there is another planet exactly like ours and if we ever made an expedition there we would think that we went in a big circle because the person that looked just like us would have taken an expedition back to earth so no one would notice that we were still gone.

I used to believe that all the stars in the sky were little living things called diggits. I gave them this name because whenever they appeared I would always hear this diggit noise. This was of course only the crickets, but at 6 years old I could know no better. Anyway, I made up a whole history about the digits and how they followed their leader, the king diggit, the moon.

I used to believe that the Moon sometimes came out in the day because it was jealous that the Sun was getting seen by all the awake people all day.

I used to believe the sun went into a hole when it was dark out and the moon came out of a hole, the holes looked like craters, and they had big dirt plate covers.

When I was small I used to believe that the sun was like a big disc, with the sun on one side and the moon on the other.
