From the orbital perspective, there we are, all 7.1 billion human passengers on Spaceship Earth, sharing the nights and the days, reaping the harvest of the seeds we have sown. #TheKeyIsWe    Photo credit to +NASA  astronaut Reid Wiseman, currently one of a crew of six living and working together onboard the International Space Station.

Tomorrow +Wasfia Nazreen  starts her climb to the highest peak in North America.

Some of us are called to change the world. Others, to save it.

On June 6, 1944, 70 years before this picture of the United Kingdom, France and Western Europe was taken from the International Space Station, thousands of American, British and Canadian troops crossed the swells of the English Channel in 5,300 ships and 11,000 planes, landing on the beaches of Normandy, France. On #D-Day, only the nearly full moon lit the path from England to France, and liberation.

Political tension may be running high, but let's get real – friends will be friends, especially if they have a common cause for the whole of humanity. This was the message of a Russian-US-German crew of astronauts in the run-up to a joint trip to space.

Just got a sat-call from Alaska- +Wasfia Nazreen  raised the Bangladeshi flag on the summit of Denali, Monday 23 June at 6:20pm Alaska time. That was the first Bangladeshi ascent of Denali/McKinley, the highest mountain in North America. She wanted me to pass on that it has been quite a treacherous journey and she’s grateful for everyone who supported her along the way. More soon when she reaches base camp safely.

This is a good one. Here’s a chance to drop in on a conversation between +Ron Garan and +Wasfia Nazreen, the Bangladeshi woman celebrating and advancing women’s progress in her young country by climbing to the highest point of every continent on our home planet - she's already made it to the summit of Everest, Elbrus, the Vinson Massif, Aconcagua, and Kilmanjaro since beginning #Bangladesh  on Seven Summits in 2011 . They’ll be hanging out Sunday, June 8, 2014 3:00PM Alaska, 6:00PM CDT, 7:00PM EDT, and Monday morning at 5:00AM in Bangladesh. Join them! #ActuallyAmazing

Florence Nightingale was named by her parents for the city of her birth in the Tuscany region of the Italian Peninsula. But it is the Crimean Peninsula we most associate with the founder of modern nursing, where she tended to the wounded in one of humanity’s brutal conflicts. Today, we are reminded of the Lady With The Lamp on the 194th anniversary of her birth by light reflected on the waters of the Crimean Peninsula from the orbital perspective of astronauts and cosmonauts living and working in space for the benefit of all.
