DENVER, CO – What 6-year-old kid doesn’t think space is cool?

Connor Johnson thinks it’s cool enough that he wants to make it his future!

Connor has big dreams. He hopes to one day become an astronaut with NASA. But over Thanksgiving, Connor learned about Congress cutting funds to the space program.

Connor is taking action and his first step is donating his own allowance!

Connor and his family decided to make a petition on the White House website.

He needs a hundred-thousand signatures for it to be seen by the White House and he currently has over five-thousand.
