Here’s a fcuking awesome timelapse video showing you the beauty that is our planet Earth, taken from the International Space Station.
You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, “Look at that, you son of a biatch.”
— Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, People magazine, 8 April 1974.
