I wrote about bulgogi, and how it means something different to everyone. I wanted to get at its expansive definition over time, its many lives. But I also wanted to get at this: Just as there is no one way to be Korean, there is no one way to make bulgogi.

I wrote this story in 2014 about how a group of extremely wealthy people interested in space exploration had also come to believe in the “overview effect,” a spiritual epiphany only accessible to those who see the earth from outer space.
