what is needed here for safety?

There are those who criticize you

who say that you rushed this mission.

This is not meant to be

a disclaimer...

but everybody knows how I feel, you

know, that I'm very protective of my men.

Columbus went around the world.

Magellan sailed around the whole planet.

We got guys going to the moon.

They rushed them to the moon.

And that was for a reason.

We need somebody there.

We need somebody to put their

foot in the dust of the moon.

Like many

brave explorers before them...

the two-men crew of Life One...

entrust their lives to their

tiny vessel and to each other...

for a chance to witness

the extraordinary.

It has been called the most dangerous

whale watching expedition in history.

When you see the planet...

what does it look like

outside the window?

It looks like stars.

We have heard that this mission

has cost you personally...

50 billion dollars.

It cost me a lot.

But look, that's what

we're here for.

That's what we're working,

that's the whole deal.

Think about this for a minute.

These boys are travelling

at the speed of a .45 bullet.

They're sound asleep.

They're gonna go around Venus, past

Earth, and then start orbiting Jupiter.

What a miracle.

They'll see the whales

of Europa.

But they'll be seeing it

with their eyes.

It won't be photographs

from NASA.

Your a man who's wealthy enough

to do anything he wants to do.

Why aren't you up there

with those men right now?

Charlie, I've done everything

I've wanted to do... just about.

I'm a bit long in the tooth.

I would'a, could'a, should'a...

but it really isn't about me.

It's about future generations.

Can I ask a question?

How is it that you plan

to spend your free time?

Space pong. We actually

won't have a lot of free time.
