Put this +Ron Garan Hangout on your calendar!
 
Ron Garan, astronaut, while floating in space, recalls looking back at our blue dot and marvelling at the beauty of our Earth. With our shrinking borders and increased technologies, why can't we collaborate globally?

While on his stint on the International Space Station this former fighter pilot saw how fifteen nationalities worked together to put a few humans into a sustained environment in space.

This is his Orbital Perspective.

His newly released book explores how the notion of Orbital Perspective can work for us on Earth. Ron is joined by:

Fellow astronaut and co-sponsor of the Ansari X-Prize for the first privately funded spacecraft, Anousheh Ansari.

Author Frank White, whose Overview Effect (now in its third ediction) chronicled the life-changing experiences of our early astronauts in viewing the Earth from space, and whose Overview Institute is working to use that experience to better life on Earth.

Mike Simmons, Founder and President of Astronomers Without Borders, which works to connect people and create collaboration based on our common heritage of the night sky.

Join our discussion about how important it is use the Orbital Perspective here at home.

Send questions ahead of time to info@astronomerswithoutborders.org or on the Google+ event page during the program.

"If we are always arriving and departing, it is also
true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination
is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."
― Henry Miller

Never underestimate the power of prayer...

"I could use all the prayers I can get right now. ;) " - Amy

This is what my sister texted to me last week upon getting some disappointing news from her neurologist.

My sister Amy has been dealing with brain cancer for many years. She was given another 3 month break after undergoing a year and a half of chemo. She had her brain scan last week to evaluate the tumor and in Amy's words it's "not good". The tumor has grown considerably in those 3 months, faster than ever before. She will be seeing the specialist in NYC asap for further evaluation. Any and all prayers and healing thoughts are welcomed ;)  It really does mean a lot to Amy! Thank you xo
