This Astronaut Explains How Space Travel Deepens Your Worldview Like Nothing Else Can
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield discusses how viewing our world from a distance widens and deepens our view of life. In space, Hadfield saw our entire 4 billion-year-old planet 16 times a day and saw a sunset every 45 minutes. Seeing this gave him a sense of privilege, reverence and awe. He could see where volcanoes and ice were billions of years ago. Hadfield says that viewing our large, ancient world as a whole helps our thinking become less narrow, and makes us appreciate that we all share the same magnificent space.
