"It’s not the borders between countries, it’s not the price of a barrel of oil, it’s not trade tariffs, it’s not illegal immigration. Earth is a tiny, #FragileOasis‬ of life, and what’s most important is human survival. And you see that so clearly from orbit." -

#OTD  ‪in 2011, #FragileOasis  founder astronaut +Ron Garan was stunned by his own photograph of a human-made border separating India & Pakistan, mistaking it for a river while orbiting Earth at 17,500mph/28.000kph onboard the International Space Station. "I have always said, you can’t see any borders from space. Apparently I was wrong." http://hope.li/EarthBorders

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.
