Dad Builds Combination Homework Desk/Mission Control Center for His Son [Video]
Presumably after listening to too much Harry Chapin.
Jeff Highsmith of MAKE thinks his son is astronaut material, and made this combination desk and NASA console to prove it. Ah, children: you give them roots, you give them wings, you give them the key to their destiny as ruler of the Mars colony.
So much room envy and so many space squees in an under five minute video. Parents of the world, a tree house might not cut it anymore. Although if you want to come build one of those for me anyway, you are very welcome to do so.
