Amelie is the Mars mission crews Physician and Biochemist and recalls her love affair the red planet beginning from when she was a young child travelling the world on her parent's sailboat and looking up to the stars. She describes how brave her father was, and that this quality inspired her to push boundaries and dream big and explore her environment around her. When she imagines stepping out as one of the first persons to place a foot on the planet's soil, she is utterly speechless. The fact that the dreams she had as a child are now coming true, it is though her reality is exceeding all of her expectations, a reality that holds potential for all of the human race.
