United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs Why Space Matters Campaign Final Winning Photograph
How time flies – Here is the final winner of @NASA and @UNOOSA #whyspacematters campaign!
Thanks to @x.j.b for this #SpotTheStation photo of my home for the past year, and for highlighting #whyspacematters to @x.j.b, who wrote: “Space matters because it serves as the foremost representation of international scientific exploration and cooperation both on and off our planet. As it orbits our planet, astronauts aboard a station of interconnected pods and modules designed, constructed, and launched into orbit by countries across the world, work together to carry out missions and goals common to the global scientific community at large. Astronauts come from nations resident to every region of the world, and as they cruise around the earth, they look down upon every part of it. From every area of our world, and to myself and every people that populate it, this structure of epic accomplishment can be seen on a starry night by the naked eye: a floating, soaring dot of light - a testament to why space matters.” #nasa #outerspace #space #UN #UnitedNations #unoosa #iss
