The view from above

"The first day or so we all pointed to
our countries. Then on the third and fourth day
we were pointing to our continents. By the
fifth day we were aware of only one earth."

--Sultan Bin Salman Al Saud
Saudi Arabian astronaut

Hi Kathleen,

Pity it is necessary to go into space to be able to "see" this. There are quite a few of us who need to take the trip!

I have heard that for many of the astronauts, it's a life changing experience. If only we could all have that vision of one earth.
