Somewhere out in space, just past the orbit of the moon, there is an imaginary line.

It's more of a sphere, of course. It represents the furthest any human being has ever been from Earth.

My biggest fear—and it came on quite suddenly, I don't know why—is that someday, somehow, I'll be carried beyond that sphere by some means, and die, out in space, more alone than any other human being has ever been.
