“It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet.”


“Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do something you’ve set your heart on.”


“Did spaceflight change my perspective? Absolutely. Did it change me as much as becoming a father did? Not even close.”


“Who knows where the inspiration that will carry someone onward for the rest of their life may come from? The possibilities are limitless.”

I think it is so important to spend time outdoors; it reminds us that we are part of nature, lets us connect with others and makes us feel good about ourselves. I hope you get the chance to get outside today? #GetOutsideDay

If alien life ever makes it to Earth, it's more likely to be coming at the speed of light, a digital hive of intelligence, than as little green people travelling in spacecraft. Or perhaps they're here already...a Swarm is Rising...

Great @Space_Station pass tonight over Central Europe.
If you are in the UK look SW at 19:56hrs. It will be passing high in the sky over southern UK, but appearing lower in the sky the further north you are.
