I heard about NASA and like, 'Oh, that's kind of interesting', then wonder like other than space exploration, like what you do? And, learning about the impact that NASA can have on our next generation and what Apollo did for our country. I mean, in the '60's, we were able to land a human on the moon with that technology, despite a growing race with Russia and all of the politics going on during that era: Kennedy's assassination, we were able to complete that, in that secured American preeminence in science and technology for decades to come. I certainly believe that, and the benefits we got from that are... You can't count that. In learning a little bit more about that and how astronauts have had the opportunity to represent humanity for good and bringing together countries in a way that politics and alliances cannot do. When you talk to some of the Apollo astronauts who went to the Moon, and they did their international travel, the comment, the feedback they would get from people would be 'We did it. We did it together.' It wasn't, 'You Americans did it.' It was, 'We did it and it was powerful that countries could come together and see that as a human accomplishment. So there's something about space that takes away those borders, because when you're up there, you don't see these distinct borders between countries, you just see a lot of blue and a lot of land. And, you see how fragile the planet is, So once I learned a little bit about that type of impact and that you can have a huge impact on the next generation of explorers, of scientists, of people who want to be a better version of themselves, maybe I could reach out to those kids, just like me, who are scared, tired, who don't think they can amount to anything. Who don't think they're worth anything. If I can reach out to them, and let them know that, Hey, it doesn't matter where you're from, With the right attitude, or the right hard work, if you get up every time you fail, you can amount to something and you can do positive work. You can leave a good impact, a positive mark for our world. That meant a lot to me, and that's when I put my name in the hat and wanted to be an astronaut, because it was completely consistent with my goals that I promised Mikey Monsoor, Marc Lee, Ryan job, a long list of our brothers who are not here with us today, that I would, for the rest of my life, do something to impact positive good in our world.
