Petty Earth Minds
“From out there on the Moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.’”
— Edgar Mitchel, Apollo 14 astronaut, speaking in People magazine on 8 April 1974.
