That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile,
so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would

Sultan bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Saudi Arabian
Before I flew I was already aware of how small and
vulnerable our planet is; but only when I saw it from

Sigmund Jahn, Germany

John David Bartoe, U. S. A.
From space, I saw Earth -- indescribably beautiful

Muhammad Ahmad Faris, Syria

Vladimir Kovalyonok, Russia
The things that we share in our world are far more

Donald Williams, USA
