    I never thought outer space was so beautiful. Honestly, but I’m still not amped about the fact in a few years we have the opportunity to travel to space. As much as it’s interesting, we also have to realize that there’s so much funding for vaccines and poverty in this world than to spend billions of dollars on something that can await a while longer. Wonderful photos though. Thanks for the post.

    If you want, check out my blog about hotel space. Hope all is well.

      I agree wholeheartedly. I think a lot about space and NASA is a huge waste of money that could benefit humanity in the here and now on Earth. People are dying and we’re spending billions in space. Asinine, but the photography is ‘heavenly’.
