Here's today's +WNYC's Leonard Lopate​ show.

I had a great time discussing a wide range of topics from The #OrbitalPerspective​

Living on the International Space Station, witnessing Earth from afar, gave Ron Garan a new point of view ;on ;the vexing problems we face today.

Thanks for the hospitality +YOTEL New York!
 
Ever imagined what it would be like to live in an underwater research lab for 18 days, or spend a total of 178 days in Space? We couldn't imagine until today when we were lucky enough to chat with well-known Astronaut and entrepreneur, +Ron Garan.  We couldn't wait to give you a little behind-the-scenes peek into our interview! #BehindTheScenes #RonGaran #Space #TheKeyIsWe #OrbitalPerspective #Astronaut #YOTEL

I'm a hermit. 180 days in a space about the size of the ISS is a dawdle to me.  I reckon I could to the trip to mars and back and barely notice the difference :D

Thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the #NepalEarthquake  
 
Violent thrusting of the plates that push the Himalayas ever upward produced a magnitude 7.8 #Earthquake   48 miles (77km) northwest of Kathmandu, Nepal today. This densely populated region of more than 2 million people last experienced this kind of destructive force in 1934, when the population was 200,000. Photo credit: NASA

Thailand where I now live also suffered the aftershock! Although not severe, Asia is being hit from all angles by disasters.

Had a great time today at +AOL HQ discussing #Planetary and The #OrbitalPerspective on +AOL BUILD 
On earth, we see the world as different nations, different people. In space, astronauts like Ron Garan see it as one planet, one civilization. In "Planetary," director Guy Reid takes us on a beautifully filmed journey across and around earth to argue that we all must take the astronaut’s view to save it from war and ecological destruction. Interview at AOL HQ in NYC for AOL BUILD.

Here's my review of the inspiring new book from astronaut +Ron Garan entitled "The Orbital Perspective- Lessons In Seeing The Big Picture From A Journey Of 71 Million Miles."

Personally I've never felt so compelled to spread a universal message before.. the message of trust, hope and global collaboration. It will change the way you look at things, I can guarantee you that! 

Be sure to reshare this post to spread the message of #hOPe  

#TheKeyIsWe  
"You don't need to be an astronaut to have the orbital perspective.." I've never reviewed a book before. I've read lots of them, sure, but I've never gotten around to sharing my thoughts on something I've read. However afte...

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.
