Out of This World

It's been written that Anousheh Ansari couldn't keep the smile off her face from the moment she boarded the flight. She is now at the International Space Station and has submitted her first blog entry from space. Here is an excerpt which can give us some inkling of how profound this journey has been for her even up till now:

"I cannot keep my eyes off the windows. Earth is magnificent and peaceful from up here. You don’t see any of those awful things you hear on the news, from up here. The Earth is so beautiful and if we could all see it this way I’m sure we would do everything in our power to preserve it. I truly hope that more and more people get to experience this trip first hand."

You are truly out of this world, Anousheh!
