Nicole Stott, Astronaut

“We have this connection to Earth. I mean, it’s our home. And I don’t know how you can come back and not, in some way, be changed. It may be subtle. You see differences in different people in their general response when they come back from space. But I think, collectively, everybody has that emblazoned on their memories, the way the planet looks. You can’t take that lightly.” - Nicole Stott, former astronaut, who served as a flight engineer on ISS Expedition 20 and Expedition 21.
