Shooting stars are beautiful creations of this universe. I feel so lucky to be able to watch such a spectacular, inspiring sight from The International Space Station. Before going into space, it was rare to catch a glimpse of a shooting star. Now, I see them a lot more often and, every time I see this magnificent phenomenon, I hold my breath, close my eyes, and make a simple wish: “Oh fuck, please don’t hit me!”
Whenever I look out and see one of these dazzling meteors soaring through space, I thank God for being able to work in the International Space Station.
