Looking down from the International Space Station, the Earth is a beautiful planet and the only one we know so far that harbors any intelligent life. A mere 7 billion humans call this planet home. From the perspective of space, this planet deserves to be protected, taken good care of, and shared. Like scientists have said (and some who have misunderstood what it means), this Earth can take care of itself. It will be here millions of years from now, no matter what we do to it. True. But the message is: It’s us who need it, as a safe home planet. We don’t have another one. Happy Holidays, all! And, remember those less fortunate.
Here are two videos from NASA.
