Interesting fellow...he was born in the UK but came to the US specifically to work for NASA. I read this and remembered some of my aspirations as a child:

"When I was a kid, I watched the Apollo launches from across the ocean, and I thought NASA was the holy mountain," Sellers said earlier this year when Bolden presented him with the Distinguished Service Medal, the agency's highest honor. "As soon as I could, I came over here to see if I could climb that mountain."
