Scientists have very cool jobs. They get to go to remote corners of the globe and observe firsthand things that most people will never see in their lifetimes. Some of them even get to see the Earth from outer space.

But even accomplished, well-traveled scientists have bucket lists—things they want to see and do before their time on Earth runs out. Recently, they began tweeting about them with the hashtag #scibucketlist.

Researcher and science communicator Bethany Brookshire, a.k.a. @SciCurious, got things rolling:

Some people just wanted to hang out with their science idols

Others wanted to see something or experience beautiful

Some were feeling humorous

Others wanted to inspire better science

But one person in particular was just totally outlandish
