My son Michael (6) watched a few minutes of Apollo 13 with me yesterday. He was enthralled by the rocket launch sequence. I asked him some “critical thinking” questions (as I often do to see if he understands the context of what he was watching).
Where do you think they’re going? Outer space.
Are they going to a planet? No, they’re going to the Moon.
Why do you think they’re going to the moon? To look for the bones.
What bones? From the cow.
What cow? The one that tried to jump over the moon.
You mean the cow didn’t make it over the moon? No, Dad; cows can’t breathe in outer space.
So he must have died and landed on the moon? Yup.
So there you have it.
