I defy you to watch this incredible trailer, compiled of footage of the human race exploring the galaxy, and not want to immediately get in a space shuttle and blast off.

Assembled by MovieClips, "Reach for the Stars" covers everything from NASA and initial lift-off to ships actually cruising the furthest reaches of space, and is comprised movies from 1902's A Trip to the Moon to Interstellar. It may be the most inspiring goddamn thing I've ever seen. If you'll excuse me, I need to write an outrageously dishonest letter to NASA claiming I am in any way an appropriate candidate for its next space mission.
