“I was offered a seat on a shuttle to space, and the offer came with wanting to document a celebrity’s experience,” he added. “They said they wanted to document my experience from start to finish and have me complete it. All around the trip and learning or whatever.”

“Now, if I’m on the other side of life — if I’m 60, 65 — my kids are a certain age. I’ve seen all the flowers blossom and I’d have lived life, that’s something that you punctuate it with,” he explained.
