Your local fans in Houston are likely wildly cheering your book signing event by now, +Ron Garan. If not, they are missing a golden opportunity to say, "Bonjour mon ami, j'etaime vous!"

40 years ago today a historic handshake in space took place. Lessons learned from this symbolic gesture have deep implications today.

"...and I think to myself what a wonderful world"

#OrbitalPerspective 

"What A Wonderful World"

I see trees of green, 
red roses too. 
I see them bloom, 
for me and you. 
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world. 

I see skies of blue, 
And clouds of white. 
The bright blessed day, 
The dark sacred night. 
And I think to myself, 
What a wonderful world. 

The colors of the rainbow, 
So pretty in the sky. 
Are also on the faces, 
Of people going by, 
I see friends shaking hands. 
Saying, "How do you do?" 
They're really saying, 
"I love you". 

I hear babies cry, 
I watch them grow, 
They'll learn much more, 
Than I'll ever know. 
And I think to myself, 
What a wonderful world. 

Yes, I think to myself, 
What a wonderful world. 

Oh yeah.

Who said launching a Liquid fueled rocket was an easy job. if it was almost everyone would be doing it. I know just designing the Orion space capsule was not easy, and it is only a part of the Orion launch system.

Story
Tagline
I think we live on a pretty cool planet (and by "cool" - I mean awesome)
Introduction
Recently returned to Earth from 5 1/2 months onboard the International Space Station. I want to use Google+ to share the experience of living and working in space with as many people as possible. The "orbital perspective" has inspired me to help make the world a better place. I hope that by sharing this perspective of our Fragile Oasis, you will also be inspired.
