Scott Kelly Suggests the Earth’s Atmosphere is Very, Very Fragile

Astronaut Scott Kelly is notorious for his pictures of Earth from the Space Station. In a recent interview with CNN, Kelly shared some information and insight about what he has seen. This includes the fact that the atmosphere appears to be very, very fragile.

He also mentioned he has seen certain weather patterns and smog in areas where they were not before. But before someone takes a grim look, he doesn’t believe this is doom and gloom for our planet, we simply need to take a proactive stance on it.

Perhaps most interesting is his question he asked for the upcoming candidates debates on CNN. This includes what their plans are for continuing the space program.

A very interesting video interview – well worth a view and a share …

(CNN)In one of his final interviews from the International Space Station, astronaut Scott Kelly said that the Earth’s atmosphere “looks very, very fragile” and “like something that we need to take care of.”

From Scott Kelly’s Twiiter account: This is a good example of the air pollution that exists across large parts of Asia. #YearInSpace

Kelly will return to Earth in March, but spoke with CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta via satellite. During his time at the space station, Kelly has remained active on social media and often shares his unique perspective of the planet by posting photos. Because of his spectacularly encompassing vantage point, Gupta asked Kelly how he would define the Earth’s condition if it were a human body.
