On station (ISS) has given us the chance to see ourselves, seven billion souls with individual dreams, “limitless possibilities to do great things” as quoted by former Commander Scott Kelly. Viewing Earth on-board the ISS is a unanimous experience by astronauts, that you don’t see the drama humans create along with mapped out borders. What’s experienced is the dynamics of nature in zero G, away from home and the thing missed the most is staying seated at a table and not having your utensils or your food float away. The isolation from the world on a ship of pressurized modules that sails around the globe every 90 mins has brought anybody who boarded her closer to us all, ask any astronaut. The creation of this film produced by NASA/JPL represented the 15th Anniversary of human presence on-board station. A truly global endeavor, more than 200 people from 15 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 1,700 research investigations from researchers in more than 83 countries.
Kelly’s right, the possibilities are limitless and we’ve done many great things already, Russia’s Roscosmos (State Corporation for Space Activities) started the space architecture with the fist module in November 1998. From there the Space Shuttle, another international achievement that flew 27 missions to finish building the largest artificial body in orbit that gave us a vantage point to see ourselves, to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies.
You know something, we keep this up eventually we’ll understand, ‘we’re in this together’ and to move that thought process forward, mission WITT (We’re In This Together) will be introduced for an experience on-board station to size up your existence. For those of us who find it hard to understand a balance of ‘we’re in this together’ are introduced to the edge, where if something fails you’re highly confident of your fellow-man or women for help and guidance to get back home after a long stay and fiery return. The lesson? welcome back for the first time of seven billion dreams and one planet.
