It was probably safe to say that when you were little, you wanted to grow up to be an astronaut. I mean, what other job seems cooler than being an astronaut? You get to fly around in a spaceship, meet aliens, discover new planets, and become an ultimate adventurer. The allure of these offworld adventures tantalizes you until you realize that you’ll never become that astronaut. You won’t be flying around in an X-wing from Star Wars, you won’t be like Sandra Bullock or George Clooney in an international space station, and you’ll never get to find all of those amazing planets you dreamed of. That was the case... until Hello Games released its highly anticipated release, “No Man’s Sky.” Finally, your dreams as a young, aspiring space explorer have come to life as you jump from planet to planet, quenching your thirst for adventure at every new and unknown sight. I take a closer look into the game to see just what magic lies within all 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 of these planets.
