Video Fridays: Time Lapse From Space – Literally. The Journey Home

Watching this video makes me wonder about the small minds on the planet that imagine that they are more important than others and have the right to take life or to own any bit of this world. Such blind, small people, how did we let them tell us what to believe or what we should do? No more, no more, no more.

Producing time-lapse video onboard the International Space Station while orbiting 250 miles above the Earth at 17,500 miles per hour helps people follow along on our missions, not as spectators, but as fellow crewmembers. — Ron Garan, NASA Astronaut, Expedition 27 & 28
