"When you turned loose the energy of a Saturn rocket, you simply had to have trust in your crew, your team, and in yourself. Through trust you reach a place where you can exploit opportunities, respond to failures, and make every second count. As gigantic as the machine was, and as puny as we humans were measured against its towering bulk, the human factors balanced the technology on the scale." (Failure Is Not An Option, p. 252)

Cover art by Henry Casselli. Formerly known as "We, I", my goal was to capture what I associate space with in music, because it's not a common aesthetic for space-themed playlists.

I associate space with focus; the slow approach of the Apollo Command Module to the LM, before it can extract it and even consider beginning its journey to the Moon; the mathematics of rendezvous with a target Agena vehicle, flying a can through a sky with no lift or drag. It is as contemplative as it is complicated, and the glory in any one moment comes from the years of preparation that came before it.
