I've always wondered about the drive folks have to write books, +Ron Garan. Surely, each person has an objective, perhaps several, and most have no realistic objective tied to making $$'s. In your case, I have to think it's about sharing your unique experience in space, an experience only a very few have made concrete. But even that theme isn't enough to fill your billet. You also project your undying love for all things #Bluedot  and to the benefit and splendor of all mankind.

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

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.
