We live on a planet that is right now hurtling through space. We all know this—but it’s a concept that’s honestly too big to understand in a way that feels like it matters. It wasn’t until astronaut Nicole Stott saw the Earth from space for the first time that she really grasped it. She calls it her “Earthrise moment” and she’s written a book in hopes of helping the rest of us have one even if we never go to space. Stott’s book is “Back to Earth: What Life in Space Taught Me About Our Home Planet—and Our Mission to Protect It.”
