Hunter’s grandfather was a software engineer on several of the Apollo missions, and Hunter has always shown a great passion for astronauts because of him. So when Make-A-Wish® volunteers asked Hunter for his one true wish, it came as no surprise that he wished to be an astronaut.
Hunter’s wish reveal took place at the California Aerospace Museum where former NASA astronaut Steve Robinson told Hunter about his upcoming visit to the Space Center in Houston. Hunter, clad in his very own astronaut suit, commented, “I’m amazed and speechless! I’m excited about going to Houston!” His grandfather, who will be joining the family at the Space Center, is thrilled that he’ll be able to visit mission control with his grandson.
