If you ask retired NASA astronaut Ron Garan which he prefers for reentry into Earth’s atmosphere, the Soyuz or the Shuttle - he has flown both - he will tell you the latter, and without hesitation. Why? Because the Soyuz return trip, as he puts it, “is like going over [...]

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.
