Yes...this whole thing has got me ticked off...but I stay away from politics on ATS LOL....though the ISS cam won't save us from an asteroid LOL, I
just enjoy watching it. It provides a glimpse of ourselves from another point of view. When I see that big blue marble spinning through the vastness
of space, I picture how small we are in the scheme of things....and it brings some bit of humility to me. Sort of puts things in perpective. Maybe if
we took more time to notice things like that, the world would be a much better place.
Yeah...I'm a dreamer LOL!

I've stayed away from politics my whole life. I just could never wrap my little pea brain around screwing someone over to get ahead. Our founding
fathers would be ever so pi$$ed.
I absolutely love the pic in the op. It does put a lot of stuff in perspective. Kinda like the ending of one of my favorite movies. When Agents K and
J open the locker, look in and see lockers for what looked like infinity.
Yeah, I hear ya girl, and I'm right there. People are too busy to appreciate the simple things. Which makes life more astounding.
Something to ponder, think about the vastness of space, how many quadrillions of miles, and think of the smallest thing you can think of and compare
the two.....try to invision it side by side. Baffling isn't it?
It is astounding. I really don't see how some people are NOT interested in things such as this. We are so wrapped up in our stupid, petty crap, we
don't even see what's around us.
When was the last time you laid in the grass and looked up at the sky....and were just QUIET. Just still, and were aware of how vast and beautiful
the universe is. We stress and worry and give ourselves heart attacks, because we FORGOT how to do this.
So do it....tonight, or tomorrow...I promise you, it will stay with you. For however long you can do it, even if it's only 20 minutes. Look up there,
THAT is why the space station and all things like it are important. Because somewhere, out there....is where WE came from.
