Humans have such great potential for making dreams into reality it is a shame we spend so much of our finite time devising the ways and means to subjugate and murder one another more efficiently.
(I noticed that they orbited over Chicago about halfway through. Don’t they know Illinois it’s illegal to photograph police in Illinois? Our brave men in government are going to have to confiscate the ISS and charge the astronauts with violating wiretapping laws.)
Okay, just kidding. But seriously, one interesting thing ISS astronauts always say, to a man, is how profoundly the days and days of staring down at Earth changes your worldview. They always say they have a much more profound regard for all men being created equal, and much less care for the borders of states.
