Our Planet Misses You
This fact might not seem like such a huge deal, but if you think about it, it’s quite odd. Until 20 years or so in the past, every human was safe on Earth. People dreamed of colonizing other planets or spending their lives drifting in space, but that’s exactly what it was. Just a dream.
In 1998, after a multinational collaborative effort, mankind launched the International Space Station into orbit. Just two years later, the first three-person crew made their way into the habitable satellite to do science-y stuff up there. Since then, there has always been at least Earthling inside of the ISS.
