Many of us dream of going to space, but what do you dream of if you’ve been there once you come back to earth?
Sometimes we forget how remarkable our planet is! The beauty of its landscapes, the resilience of its people, the endless diversity of its wildlife. Today, we bring you a short, but powerful video to remind us all of how miraculous our home is.
This time, we take a journey into the remarkable insights that come from what an astronaut dreams.
So, what do you think an astronaut dreams about?
Take a moment to savor your favorite thing about the planet. Can you think of a particular place that is meaningful to you? What do you love most about returning home after a long trip?
There so many remarkable things to love about this planet, so many reasons to remember that “it’s still an amazing world!”
