Published on Dec 30, 2016
In an interview from July 2016, NASA Astronaut Piers Sellers shares the dreams that led him to become an astronaut and his hopes for future exploration. A veteran of three spaceflights (STS-112, STS-121, and STS-132) and a renowned climate scientist, Sellers died on Dec. 23 at the age of 61.
“We lost a tremendous public servant who was dedicated to NASA, the nation and the world," said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. "He was a strident defender and eloquent spokesperson for our home planet, Earth. Spacewalker and scientist, free thinker and friend to our planet, and all who seek new knowledge, to say he will be missed would be a gross understatement."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sC217wotZy8?t=001
