Being a kid, growing up in rural Minnesota, I spent many nights staring up into the skies wondering that its really like out there, envying astronauts at their exclusive view of the world(s) above. Today, I'm a 30 year man living in one of the greatest ages of discovery we've ever known, and I get to literally witness it happening right in front of me. Volumes of astronauts have joined Twitter as of late, and thanks to the magic of technology, they have internet access from the ISS (International Space Station). To see Tweets like this bring a bit of a tear to my eye, as not only is it a deeply profound feeling to somewhat share a beautiful moment like this with someone literally in space, but to take a step back from all the garbage and spin we're constantly bombarded with in our day to day lives and say "Holy shit, look at what we've done as a race." That's pretty damned inspiring if you ask me!
