Return to Space | Official Trailer | Netflix

Earth is the cradle of humanity. But you cannot stay in the cradle forever. Demonstration Mission 2, it’s gonna be the first time a commercially-built spacecraft will launch people to the Space Station. We’ll launch American astronauts from American soil for the first time in nine years. NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley. To think about flying rockets again to the Space Station… it’s unbelievable. Elon and SpaceX changed our industry completely. Everything, down to the nuts and bolts, was redesigned for the modern era. This is a much greater vision that he has. We’re gonna have a base on the moon. We’re gonna send people to Mars. The work requires a lot of dedication, a lot of focus, and always a lot of risk. A part of you can’t let go hopefully irrational fear that something could go wrong. Launch makes you superstitious. Here’s my dragon socks. There’s always things you don’t know, so you don’t know when those will get you. It’s gonna be right on the edge, probably. During your life, there are things that are risky, but if it results in a better world, maybe it’s worth that risk. We should think more about, what’s the future we want? For me, it’s making sure we become a spacefaring civilization. Just looking out the window, you can literally see out into the galaxy. As you go around Earth, you don’t see the lines and borders drawn on maps. You see the Earth as this one entity. And it’s our home. You realize our world is precious and you start to have an appreciation for how little you actually are. To be out there among the stars… Yeah! …I find that incredibly exciting. That makes me glad to be alive.
