Looking Back At Home

For me, one of the saddest things in life is to see inner city gangs fighting over turf. Often just a block or two. I’ve always found that view of life so limiting.

I feel the same way about people that have never traveled outside of their city or county. There is so much about this life and this universe to discover. Now look at this picture!

That’s home. Home for me. Home for you. Home for all six billion humans in this universe. Everyone that you have ever loved, every person in all of history has lived on that ball of rock.

This picture was taken from a satellite that was orbiting the planet Mars. Back in 2006, it took some time out from looking down at Mars and turned its camera towards the heavens. Wow! Even more spectacular is the full image, which captures Jupiter and its moons.

Support space science and exploration! Turn your kids into space nerds!

Big ups to BA for the highlight of the original!
