When we speak of Space, it's usually from the perspective of a place that we go to, an outer place - separate from and beyond ours and us. Discussions of Space travel have usually brought to mind visions of people in clean white suits, working with gleaming technical equipment - rather sterile in character. As I stood on a perimeter road near Kennedy Space Center's Launch Site 39B, I pondered the great abundance of life around the Space Center, the very organic, earthly and dirty work of projecting humans from Earth to parts beyond. I mused from a perspective that Earth is a planet traveling through Space, we are in Space and we are that which we seek.
