Being an astronaut used to be a pretty popular choice, but now only 11 percent want to become an astronaut compared to 29 percent who want to be social media stars.
However, the study also found that 86 percent of kids are interested in space and 90 percent want to learn more.
To inspire the next generation of space explorers, Lego is partnering with Scholastic to send 50 kids to Space Camp in 2020.
