So badass. University of Connecticut alumnus Rick Mastracchio is an astronaut currently stationed on the International Space Station for an eight-month mission.  In his speech to UConn’s engineering graduating class, he spoke a very true truism: “I probably have the best job on and off the planet,” noting how it took hard work and perseverance to meet his goal of being an astronaut. Too bad he didn’t give the entire speech upside down. Or open a bag of chips:
