It's about all of us

Dear Earth Right Now blog readers,

I appreciate you. I appreciate that you take the time to read these blog posts and that many of you like them, share them and even comment on them. I know it might seem like at NASA we are all a bunch of super intelligent, creative, intuitive space people, but in reality, we’re just like you. We have ups and downs, good days and rough patches. Often it’s the things that appear small that can be inspiring and meaningful, too.

I spend a large portion of my workday looking at satellite images of Earth, an amazingly glorious expanded view. This view from far above gives me a unique window into places on our planet that I haven’t been to, or places that maybe I’ll never ever go. It’s like looking at life or life’s problems from a distance can actually put everything into perspective.

All of us—you and I—we are together on this planet. We don’t need to travel very far to get excited. We can be astounded by what’s here.

Thanks to all of you again!

Laura
