I'm enjoying the book Small Pleasures, Finding Grace in a Chaotic World, by Justine Toms.
This comes from the book.
Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome, coined the term Spaceship Earth.
He would say, "We aren't going into space, we are in space." "Bucky would add the fact that the Earth is spinning at 1,040 miles per hour as we rip through space at 18.5 miles per second (about 66,660 miles per hour) in its orbit around the sun, and the Milky Way is barreling through space at 185 miles per second."
Enjoy the ride of which you are a part!
