NASA's Glenn Mitchell Youts tells Boing Boing, "The ISS program developed a relationship with singer/songwriter Jason Mraz over the past year, and obtained the rights for his song 93 Million Miles. So we released a video today!"
We are off the earth, for the earth. NASA and its international partners have successfully been living continuously on the International Space Station (ISS) for over 14 years. This "Home" in space gives us a tremendous view of earth our home. During 6 month missions to space, Astronauts and Cosmonauts are able to communicate with their families in their homes.
As NASA begins to explore beyond low earth orbit, "Home" will take on a whole new meaning. Home is inside of you, whether its mars, the ISS, earth, or where you hang your hat (space helmet). This video is set to the song "93 Million Miles" by Jason Mraz. Intermixed are selections of video that show the beauty of planet Earth (home) as seen from the space station and scenes of astronauts and cosmonauts performing science and day-to-day activities.
