I guess, practically, the outside is how they keep you alive.  If that was how 
you introduced space, as a career, to young kids/adults, the importance of space 
based careers which you might discuss later, might just go in one ear, and out 
the other because of the overwhelming fact about this giant elephant, named risk 
of death, standing in the room.

It's much better to let everyone think about the good that they will make happen 
rather than how often their life will be at risk due to unforeseen circumstances 
associated with the space environment.  We share risk of death on the planet 
just like off the planet.  We just feel the risks are much more controllable on 
the planet.  In reality they really are not that controllable.  We hear about 
many of those uncontrollable moments on the evening news and read about them in 
the morning.
