When asked about how being in space made him feel connected to earth he said: “The sunrises and sunsets, they were more like watching a painting be created in front of you. What really tied you to home was seeing all seven and a half billion people every day. Because, the world turns underneath you. So, you see, everybody you look down and go, ‘Oh look there’s Karachi. Nine 9 million people. Holy cow,’ and 10 minutes later you’re coming over Singapore and you wait 40 minutes and now you’re over San Francisco. The whole world and everybody in it, all of our what we think are so wildly different cultures… you know we pretend we’re so radically different from each other. When you see the whole thing in 90 minutes you realize this is one little shared planet. If you go around it in 90 minutes, it can’t be very big. You can run for 90 minutes, you know. So the world is not very large and I think that’s what really tied me back, the sunrises and sunsets.”
