I took my seat on the airplane and as usual, began to play a movie– Interstellar. I was about to embark on a journey, one that I have taken many times before– to space! This time I would accompany Matthew McConaughey as a post apocalyptic NASA sends him on a journey through space and time to save humanity while he attempts to reconcile his relationship with the daughter he left behind on earth. Although my body has never left the safe haven of earth’s atmosphere, my mind has often journeyed far beyond our earthly realm.
