Despite the fact that I love adventure, the thought of leaving Earth — outer space — has always scared the crap out of me. It makes me feel small, insignificant, alone... that is until I read the intro to Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's book You Are Here: Around The World In 92 Minutes.
While living and working in the International Space Station, Hadfield took thousands of photos of the earth from many different perspectives. He didn't just snap and shoot either, he made it his goal to capture different landmarks, weather patterns, natural phenomena, cities, water currents, and more. It was this quote that opened my mind a little:
Well I'm still not convinced that going into space will ever be something that I long to do, there is no denying that this book is full of gorgeous photos that will have you looking at our world in a totally different way!
