"During the eight days I spent in space, I realised
that humankind needs height, primarily to better know
our long-suffering Earth, to see what cannot be seen close up.
Not just to love her beauty, but also to ensure that we do not
bring even the slightest harm to the natural world."
Pham TuanSoyuz 37, July 1980
