Thanks Ron for caring about the people of this planet. Your passion inspires Earth-bound folks like me to want to make our world a better place. It's a pleasure to have you represent us on our Off-Planet United Nations -- better known as the International Space Station. :)

Ron, I met Leland Melvin at the Next Gen conference in FL and he told me about Fragile Oasis. I had asked suborbital space vehicle CEO's if they felt they had a social responsibility to get as many diverse people from different nations into space to experience the overview effect. This has the potential of being the greatest SOCIAL experiment of all time. What if not only scientists but also communicators like writers, poets, artists, musicians, dancers, animators and filmmakers had the opportunity to go to space? What if those with Xtreme occupations like logging, commercial fishing, steelworkers, waste management providers, farmers, etc, saw Earth from space? What if we followed the 'common man's journey through social networking and fundraising so the Whole World had a voice on who when to space on a suborbital flight? What if the story of their journeys inspired the world, from the time they declared I WANT TO BE AN ASTRONAUT to their launch, landing and continued journey to heal the Earth and its people. When they took off, when they returned, WE, the Whole Earth, could say that's MY Astronaut. I voted for him/her. There would be a new sense of ownership of the journey. check out www.MY-Astronaut.org. What do you think?

Thanks Astro Ron, this is an inspiration to those of us that are often told that `we` can never make a difference. Love Our Planet, it amazingly provides us with all that we need to survive. Of course the Sun is also crucial to the Earth to sustain life :)
