The Trip Up

Posted on Sep 25, 2006

“The Trip Up” is the title of Anousheh Ansari’s blog post from space. Ansari was the first the first civilian to blog from beyond Earth’s orbit. She writes, “Hi everyone, it is about 11:30 GMT here on ISS. It looks like my first entry from space made it down there.. Amazing, isn’t it…?”

News of a blog post from space made my day. It reminded me that at the core, our quest for innovation, new technologies, better science, creativity and collaboration is a quest to discover, improve, connect and feel our collective humanity.
