"Looking outward to the blackness of space, sprinkled with the glory of a universe of lights, I saw majesty - but no welcome. Below was a welcoming planet. There, contained in the thin, moving, incredibly fragile shell of the biosphere is everything that is dear to you, all the human drama and comedy. That's where life is; that's were all the good stuff is." - Loren Acton, payload specialist, STS-51F/Spacelab-2 Challenger #OrbitalPerspective

Good morning Earthlings. That's not Jupiter, but this pic did get our imaginations going this morning! Our home planet, the sun and a bit of lens distortion taken by a human living and working onboard the International Space Station 2 May 2015. #OrbitalPerspective

The origin of this aurora is a star more than 92 million miles away from Earth. Unbelievable! #OrbitalPerspective

+Jason Drage .....I am very sorry. You must be correct. Thanks for that information. I know, the nearest star is around four light years away. Thanks once again, for that useful link. Good Morning.

Will it take #Moonshot  thinking to get to #Mars ? Here's astronaut +Ron Garan's audacious #OrbitalPerspective  via +Big Think. What do YOU think?   
There's no reason why humanity can't re-establish its moon presence while also keeping an eye on the red planet.

Sounds like he's saying what I've said all along. And since he's younger than I am, I said it first. :)

For  #CincoDeMayo  Moon over Mexico Cinco de Mayo in Mexico and the U.S. commemorates 5 May 1862 when Mexican troops defended the town of Puebla, southeast of Mexico City. Why did this matter then, and still matter today? http://nyti.ms/1fJkp7i

Story
Tagline
Connecting Space and Earth. Learn. Act. Make A Difference.
Introduction

Fragile Oasis is the grassroots initiative that connects the orbital perspective of astronauts and cosmonauts who live and work together in space with people who want to make a difference on Earth.

These are our goals:
  • Use the unique orbital perspective to inspire people to improve life on our planet
  • Get the word out that the International Space Station is an incredible global asset
  • Highlight the advances in science and technology that are improving life on Earth
  • Inspire students to academic excellence
  • Give people the opportunity to experience living and working in space through the experiences of crewmembers living and working onboard the International Space Station, not just as spectators but as fellow crewmembers traveling the universe together on the spaceship we call Earth.
