I look at it now and I, before it was, "I'd like to go there someday." And now, it's, "I want to go there sooner." And, I, I want to be there. And, I want to go. And, I want to explore. And, it's, it does have a different meaning now. And, I was actually driving or talking on the phone with my brother one day, and he said that he was staring at the Moon the other day and he looked at it and said, "Wow! My brother might be going there someday." And so, it has a different meaning for him. And, that's what I think the educator astronaut program can do, is that: We are teachers. We're everyday people. And, I think we can inspire others by what we're doing.
