Houston, I hear you have a global problem,
Everyone’s scared, and it’s a struggle to stop them,
Things are so crazy, you’re all on lockdown,
Who knew, we’d be less confined than you now!
It’s still awesome here, watching Earth’s rotation,
But as you know, time’s slower on the Space Station,
However, it’s of the essence, so I wanted to know,
At a guess… when will it be safe to come home?

As many of you may already know, I am a huge science and space Geek! I literally binge-watch scientific programmes and space documentaries, (among other things of course).
I have huge respect for those brave souls, who are ethically pushing the envelope of our understanding, and what we are capable of.
So, I wanted to take a moment to put us in an Astronaut’s shoes, and encourage us to think about how this global crisis must look, to those who are isolated for a living, for months at a time!
I regularly watch live streams on YouTube, of the view of Earth and space from the ISS (International Space Station), it’s an awe inspiring experience, but I bet it pales in comparison to actually being there!
I hear that it really puts into perspective both how insignificant we are as individuals, a species, or planet even; but also how many once-thought “impossible” hurdles, we managed to find a way past, in order to further Humanity’s achievements, and illustrate how amazing we are.
So, remember, what we accomplish, is only limited by our creativity and belief… thus, it’s important to keep hope alive folks!
Love and Respect always,
