A tribute to the brave men and women of NASA -- past, present and future -- who daily exemplify Capt. Kirk's bold exhortation: "Risk is our business!" No great objective is achieved without stumbles and sacrifice. A brief, selective look at where NASA has been and where it might be going. This video was inspired after attending William Shatner's one-man Broadway show, "Shatner's World," in which I was struck by the virility of this particular speech.

Spoken audio from:
"Star Trek: The Original Series - Return to Tomorrow"

"The Enterprise," by Jerry Goldsmith, "Star Trek: The Motion Picture"

Footage from:
- "Apollo 13"
- "From Earth to the Moon"
- "Wonders of the Solar System"

Special thanks to user mikebanom for the NASA logo animation.
