Reach for the Stars

Your Shot photographer Emilia Wilgosz-Peter's daughter Laura loves space. "To be an astronaut is my daughter's dream," she says. Emilia and her husband drove Laura 300 miles to see an exhibit in Warsaw, Poland, called Gateway to Space, where Laura got to pose inside an astronaut suit. "She reads many books about science and believes that one day she will fly a rocket into space!" Emilia says. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
