One of the all-time most amazing reasons to visit the Kennedy Spaceflight Center is that on most days you can just walk in and sit down and hear - and speak WITH - actual legendary Astronauts. 

The sessions are done in a full AV auditorium where there are plenty of cameras... all turned off far as I can tell.

I've never seen anyone govt or private passing vids or auds around, so I recorded this and here it is for you.  If you want a higher quality version, let me know.
