Tyler dreams big about a career out of this world

WHEN little Tyler Kroesen was asked what he wished he could make in his school journal, the first thing that came to mind was a robot spaceship.

Year 1 students at St Stephen's Lutheran College are answering questions in a daily diary this term.

One of the questions is 'I wish I could make...'

Tyler, 6, wrote 'I wish I could make a robot spaceship so I can see space.'

He also drew a colourful picture of himself inside a spaceship with planets and comets flying around him.

"I like space because it has stars and all kinds of things," he said. "I want to be an astronaut."

Tyler said he was able to look closer at the universe at home.

"I have a telescope at home, one that you can see closer to the stars with," he said.

"My great gran bought it for me for my sixth birthday."

Tyler said he didn't believe in aliens, but had a pretty good idea of what it would be like to go to space.

"In space I would float and it would be dark."
