Are people born with a love of space adventure?

I was never interested in anything sci fi or set in space until I finally played "Mass Effect" after a friend recommended it to me. Shortly after finishing the trilogy I devoured shows like "Babylon 5", "Battlestar Galactica", "Farscape", "Firefly", and now "The Expanse". Around this time I first discovered the movie "The Fifth Element".

Are people born with a love of space adventure or can one good work of a genre make a person a fan? Are there some deeper psychological factors at play here? For some reason I associate space opera particularly the ones with aliens and lasers with the 1990s and for me who was a child growing up in the 90s I consider the decade to be one of happiness and optimism.
