Remember: there’s no place else to go

Posted: April 20, 2007 in Uncategorized
Out of dozens of billions of people, only a few dozen individuals have actually seen Earth…from space, that is. It obviously leaves a rather lasting impression, when reading these quotes from those who have seen Earth for what it truly is. Many of them only saw it only once or twice.
The Mercury 7 pilots were the most famous, having gone first…but only Wally Schirra was also a pilot for both Gemini and Apollo projects as well. Somehow, he had the best quote of them all, even beating out John Glenn…
“I left Earth three times. I found no place else to go. Please take care of Spaceship Earth.”
Of course, I’m sure that smart-ass Buzz Aldrin will point out the moon was a pretty decent place to go…
