This is one of my favorite Space Shuttle pictures. I took it over Long Island (The other Long Island) as the last Space Shuttle to fly (Atlantis) approached the International Space Station

Just got a sat-call from Alaska- +Wasfia Nazreen  raised the Bangladeshi flag on the summit of Denali, Monday 23 June at 6:20pm Alaska time. That was the first Bangladeshi ascent of Denali/McKinley, the highest mountain in North America. She wanted me to pass on that it has been quite a treacherous journey and she’s grateful for everyone who supported her along the way. More soon when she reaches base camp safely.

Cool! Just got a sat-call from +Wasfia Nazreen  climbing Denali They are waiting @ camp 14 (2nd to last camp before the summit) for the wind & snow conditions to improve before their summit push.

She asked me to pass on that everyone is doing brilliant and unaffected from the recent earthquake on Denali

They hope to be at high camp in a couple of days

Here's another unreasonable blog post


+Unreasonable Institute  
Read an astronaut's reflection after seeing the human-made border between India and Pakistan from the International Space Station, and heed his call to action: we must strive to improve life on Earth.

Tune in later today if you can and help me give +Wasfia Nazreen  a great sendoff as she starts her climb of Denali. This will be #6 of 7 in her quest to climb the highest peaks on all 7 continents. Tune in also to hear why she's doing it!
 
This is a good one. Here’s a chance to drop in on a conversation between +Ron Garan and +Wasfia Nazreen, the Bangladeshi woman celebrating and advancing women’s progress in her young country by climbing to the highest point of every continent on our home planet - she's already made it to the summit of Everest, Elbrus, the Vinson Massif, Aconcagua, and Kilmanjaro since beginning #Bangladesh  on Seven Summits in 2011 . They’ll be hanging out Sunday, June 8, 2014 3:00PM Alaska, 6:00PM CDT, 7:00PM EDT, and Monday morning at 5:00AM in Bangladesh. Join them! #ActuallyAmazing

Some of us are called to change the world. Others, to save it.

On June 6, 1944, 70 years before this picture of the United Kingdom, France and Western Europe was taken from the International Space Station, thousands of American, British and Canadian troops crossed the swells of the English Channel in 5,300 ships and 11,000 planes, landing on the beaches of Normandy, France. On #D-Day, only the nearly full moon lit the path from England to France, and liberation.

Hello Ron,  you guys are about to catch up with me. I have so many pictures of my friends and family it will take me years to sort them out. It is hard to admit that you have done a better job of keeping your work organized. All of my circles of people love to keep up with what you are doing so keep sharing the post. Blessing to all of you who are paving the way to find resources and new places for us to live or grow food. It is an exciting time to be alive.

Tomorrow +Wasfia Nazreen  starts her climb to the highest peak in North America. Today I will speak with her about her reasons for doing it and we'll talk about her "Bangladesh on Seven Summits Foundation" which aims to develop vital education programs, employment and outdoor training for at-risk adolescent girls in Bangladesh and Nepal. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Ron Garan. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

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.
