Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton shared with US Weekly a list of 25 things people may not know about her.

Most things on the list are actually well known facts about Clinton, like how she served as a U.S. senator from New York and that she's a grandmother to Charlotte. She also used the list to once again stick it to NASA.

"When I was a girl, I wrote to NASA to ask if I could become an astronaut," Clinton said. "They wrote a very polite letter back saying they didn’t take girls."

Clinton has told the story many times before, calling the alleged rejection "infuriating."

"My dream was to be an astronaut when I was about 13 or 14 years old," she said at a town hall event in 2009.

Clinton also mentioned her appreciation for yoga, the best advice she ever received from her mother and stories about her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
