Play / pause The International Space Station

The International Space Station

  • Flt Sgt Justin Brown
  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


For me, the International Space Station

is how the world should be.

It's something that defines us as a species

what we've done with space,

that we've managed now to get something

that's been in orbiting the earth for many years

and we've had people of different races, creeds,

colors, nations, all within one place, working together

and you have to work together to get the job done

and you're coming back out of it

probably a new person, I can imagine.

It's something I would love to do as human being

is to go up there because I can imagine

going up there and looking down at earth,

every astronaut that has been spoken to,

that's gone up there for first time

as they look down at the earth

and they realize what it's all about,

that we're a small dot in a very, very big universe.

And it brings it home that,

all the rubbish that goes on down on the planet

when it comes to, you know,

all the prejudices and so on and so forth.

It's like, is it really worth it?

No, because we should all be just together as a race.
