Glory

Glory comes from a job well done. You'll experience the thrill of experimentation, of exploration, even when you're doing mundane things like testing landing-chute lube. You are part of the grand mission of human exploration, following in the footsteps of the explorers of history—Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Jules Verne (okay, so he wrote about imaginary expeditions, but still…) and Ernest Shackleton.

It's the glory of the journey—and the destination isn't bad, either.
