When I was 16 I spent two weeks at NASA, seeing the space shuttle land, meeting astronauts, and apparently being a risk to national security. This is the story of how that experience changed my life, and why 'once in a lifetime trip' is the verbal version of Attack of the Clones.

The phrase which I really like is "we are all prisoners to our previous reference point", and the point of this video is basically to talk about the importance of this idea, and the reference points we choose to define our lives relative to. I got it from this excellent interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ3yu5qF3G0
