- There are thousands of asteroids whose orbit in the Solar System crosses that of Earth. And we have a little acronym for them – NEOs: near Earth objects. And our biggest goal is to try to catalogue them, so we know in advance if one is going to put us at risk. – Neil deGrasse Tyson
- The opportunity to orbit the Earth, witnessing multiple sunrises and sunsets every day, looking back to our small blue life-sustaining jewel from a distance, gives me the greatest sense of anticipation. – Sarah Brightman
- Looking down at the Earth, you started to pick up a sense of speed much more than I had noticed on orbit. – Robert Crippen
