      Hi Callum,

      I’ve never been aboard the ISS, though I imagine the view of Earth from space is truly astounding; at least that’s what I hear from all the astronauts I have spoken to. I think you get a sense of appreciation as to how small our planet is, and how much care and attention we need to give to it.

      I got the chance to interview a few astronauts about this and the Ri made a couple of short films using the recordings. You should check it out!
