When I was a kid, I dreamed of being an astronaut. Floating around in a space shuttle/station and looking down on Earth from above must be an absolutely incredible feeling.
Thanks to astronauts Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio who are part of Expedition 38 aboard the International Space Station, more people can know what that feels like. The pair filmed this amazing video of themselves trying to find various cities and countries across the globe from the Cupola observatory module on the space station.
The video really makes you feel like everything we do is just so insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

This is the kind of thing that really drives home the fact that we are all in this together. We worry so much about this piece of land or that group of people and we never think how we are all on this amazing oasis in the vastness of the universe together.
