Leland Devon Melvin, Astronaut

“We look at the planet from that vantage point of this orbital outpost traveling 17,500 miles per hour, going around the planet every 90 minutes and I didn’t see any borders. I saw this fragile blue planet that we are all in charge of ensuring that we keep it sustained." - Leland Devon Melvin, former astronaut, who served on Space Shuttle Atlantis.
