Earthrise from Moon & Edgar Mitchell quote

“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.” –Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronauth and the sixth person to walk on the Moon.
