Blue is considered a cool color. But when winter has you in its grip, these tidal flats and channels near Sandy Cay along the eastern margin of the Great Bahama Bank are warmly inviting indeed! Photograph by a human living and working onboard the International Space Station where the outside temperature swings from 250 degrees F (121 C) to 250 degrees F (-157 C). Credit: NASA

+Bartley Gerba "Thanks For the fake photo..Why can't the sun be in the same shot..???Shadows are a joke..nice try..."

The sun is behind the viewer and there is nothing wrong with the shadows here. What exactly do you think is fake about this?

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.
