This is just a preview of an upcoming time lapse video taken by Ron Garan from the space station for the project FragileOasis.
If you haven’t heard about this project, it’s worth checking out. This is Ron Garan’s mission statement for Fragile Oasis.
It is very difficult to look at our beautiful Earth from space without being moved in some way. One of the main goals of Fragile Oasis is to share this orbital perspective and inspire people to go out and make a difference; to go out and somehow make life better for those with whom they share this fragile oasis. The Fragile Oasis community was established to unite in the common goal of sharing our humanity and improving our world. Let us inspire, recognize, and help each other in our collective quest to make life better on our planet.
