Check out this new film from United Space Alliance. A beautiful view of our foothold in space, discovering a better life on Earth.

Here, the departing STS-119 crew looks back at the nearly complete ISS. Compare it to the view I had in 2001. (read about how we built the ISS in “Sky Walking: An Astronaut’s Memoir“)

And the Space Station is just a stepping stone…to the Moon, the asteroids, and Mars!
