“It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet.”


“Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do something you’ve set your heart on.”


“Did spaceflight change my perspective? Absolutely. Did it change me as much as becoming a father did? Not even close.”


“Who knows where the inspiration that will carry someone onward for the rest of their life may come from? The possibilities are limitless.”
