Greetings earthlings. This is 7-year-old kid astronaut and first-grader Harrison Sheldon. 🚀He’s the star of @smallstepsaregiantleaps, a photo project that his dad, editorial photographer and nonprofit media consultant Aaron Sheldon, started when Harrison was 4 years old.
Instagram: Aaron, is there a game attached to the project?
Aaron: When we decide to visit a place for the project, we talk about what we might see there. During our visit, I have Harry compare what we thought we might see with the actual experience. My favorite part of each shoot is hearing his thoughts about the places and what he liked about each place as we look at the pictures together over a post-mission doughnut, cookie or ice-cream cone.
IG: Astronaut Harrison, what’s the best part of being an astronaut?
Harrison: Exploring places, meeting astronauts, bouncing on hotel beds, having cool exploring gear and snacks.
IG: Astronaut Harrison, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Aaron: What if your plan to create your own superpowers doesn’t work out? What would you be if you can’t be a superhero?
Harrison: Police officer and construction worker in space.
Check out today’s story to explore along with Harrison and Aaron on some of their adventures.
