Its always lovely to see the world from a different perspective.
So far 2016 has been a year of loss, confrontation, violence and a bat-shit crazy election. It can be easy to think that everything falling apart; that all is not well. But up above you can’t see the craziness, that hatred, you don’t think about the people and things that are gone and never coming back. Up above there is peace. And there is beauty.
Seeing the world like this its not hard to be an optimist.
Good Morning From the International Space Station
Expedition 48 Commander Jeff Williams of NASA shared this sunrise panorama taken from his vantage point aboard the International Space Station, writing, “Morning over the Atlantic…this one will hang on my wall.”
Williams and Flight Engineer Kate Rubins are preparing to venture back outside the space station on the morning of Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016, for their second spacewalk in less than two weeks. Less than a week after they complete that spacewalk, Williams will return to Earth with his Expedition 48 crewmates Oleg Skripochka and Alexey Ovchinin. They will undock their Soyuz TMA-20M spacecraft from the orbiting laboratory’s Poisk module on Sept. 6 and land in Kazakhstan, ending their five-and-a-half-month mission.
