Although Benjamin Franklin dropped out with only two years of formal schooling, most of his education was self-taught and earned him honorary degrees from Yale, Harvard, Oxford University in England, and University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

While the other students wanted to become doctors, engineers or lawyers, I proudly told everyone that I wanted to become a space scientist. I always wanted to look at the night sky, through a telescope, but before that wish could have come true I got the opportunity to look past a microscope, looking at the magnificent details of an onion peel.
