Awe and Danny Boyle


Yet more amazing footage of our Earth from the International Space Station. The soundtrack is from Sunshine - the amazing Danny Boyle (yes , he of the Olympic opening ceremony) movie which is both sad and spectacular. Awesome is an oft misused word, but it is THE only word to use when our planet earth is viewed from up there. My perspective of  work life etc changes when I see something like this. I need to remortgage the house and book a trip on Richard Branson's space plane!
