One Giant Leap!!
Jane and I recently attended Purdue University’s 150 year birthday celebration. One of the weekend’s highlights was a luncheon with 13 of Purdue’s 25 astronaut alumni. These remarkable men and women shared their space experiences including preparation, space module conditions, future exploration opportunities and benefits, and in a somber moment, their personal losses following the Challenger accident.
Many of the astronauts commented about viewing earth from space. Here are a few of those comments.
“Seeing earth from space is transformative.”
– Beth Moses
“I was looking at the home of all of humanity, a fragile, beautiful planet that we need to protect.”
– Mark Polansky
“The sunrises and sunsets reveal the earth’s atmosphere – a very thin layer that protects us.”
– Gary Payton
I had a wonderful one-on-one conversation with Gary Payton during which I mentioned our firm’s commitment to sustainable investing. The sharing of his space experience and observation has further solidified that commitment.
