o bad to here NASA's replacement company had a bad launch. MY brother who is an electrical engineer at Lockheed Martin and works on the Orion capsule had this last week off NASA and the Denver company. But knowing Government some how they will get the blame. It seems no one that caused the errors today gets blamed or fined.

+The List TV Show gives you, "5 things you didn't know about space".
Have you ever wondered what it was like to be up in space? Only a few people get to actually experience a real moon walk, but we are here to help. The List's Bradley Hasemeyer gets a real-life look into what it's like from astronaut Ron Garan.

"...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.

Ever wondered what astronauts see when they return from the International Space Station at the end of their mission, tucked tightly into a Soyuz space capsule? Well, it's this.

EG returns FOR THE FINAL TIME to the Steinbeck Forum at the Monterey Conference Center. Very few passes and hotel rooms remain, but it may still be possible to register. Metaphors aren't adequate. It is a singular thrill to be immersed with the amazing and enthusiastic people at EG: a conference like no other.

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.
