Steve Gleason to ground control: The former Saint applies to go to space
 
1 Attachment(s)
Steve Gleason submitted a video application Friday (March 2) to Space for Humanity, a non-profit organization offering a group of "non-astronauts" a free trip outside the Earth's atmosphere.

Gleason shared the video via Twitter the next day, asking his followers to like the YouTube video to keep him in the running for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

According to the non-profit's website, Space for Humanity's goal is to "democratize space and to increase human awareness to help the world solve its most intractable problems." The organization was founded last year and is based in Denver, Colorado.

The organization states there are only three requirements to apply for the galactic journey: be over the age of 18, speak English and "have a passion for humanity and a desire to change the world."

Finalists will move forward with interviews in early 2018, according to the website, and the chosen group will be brought to "the edge of space" at the end of the year.

In his application, Gleason discusses his passion for exploration, Team Gleason and his refusal to let a terminal illness keep him from living a life full of adventure.

"People diagnosed with ALS end up losing the ability to move, and typically end up fading away quietly to die," Gleason says in the video. "For me, that was not ok."

Let's make Steve Gleason the first Saint in space. I wonder how well he could handle the stress on his body?
