I remember when my daughter was small.She had one of those puzzles that had shaped holes in it and a bunches of shaped pieces that fit into the holes. I remember being lucky enough to have been there right at the moment that she solved it. The look of awe, achievement and wonder on her face when it finally clicked to her that she knew what went where. She breathed in making an excited inward sigh of acknowledgement and then proceeded to put all the pieces into the right holes and then looking at me triumphant and holding the puzzle out at arms length with her beaming, grinning little face. I was proud and I gave her a massive hug and telling her so.

A few days later on a dark and freezing December night, I took my daughter for a walk in her pram with me to the local store. As I was pushing her I heard her talking to herself in frustration and struggling. So much so that that an extra blanket I had put over her to keep the cold away was falling off. I stopped the pram and I walked around the front and saw that my daughter was reaching up into the night sky. In her hand was a crescent shaped piece from her puzzle. She was trying very hard to put this piece into the crescent shaped moon in the sky and was getting so frustrated that she couldn't reach.

Yesterday, NASA reached Jupiter with Juno. I now look at the photos that have been sent back so far within it's mission with the same awe, achievement and wonder that my daughter had back then. As we get older and the more we know, the wonders that are around us seem to disappear. We all looked into the night sky as kids and wondered. My daughter could never have reached the moon that night, but as we have progressed as a species and have become more technologically advanced, reaching out into the night sky is now possible. We are travelling further and discovering more now than we ever thought that we would.

This and all of the other scientific mysteries that have been solved or found have been made possible by the people who wondered, dreamed and dared to follow their dreams and continued to solve puzzles. My hat goes off to each and every one of them for keeping the wonder alive in me and reminding me of the great things that humanity can do if we try and never give up. Especially on our dreams.

Oh, and the next time you see a small child solving something. Give them a big hug and just imagine what they may solve in the future and the wonders and mysteries that they could unlock.
