While I think all of the research is fascinating and I'm awed by the possibilities that the research may bring for the rest of us here on Earth, I have to admit that the mere thought of going into space gives me the heebie jeebies! I am most definitely and assuredly an earth sign. I like my feet firmly planted on Mother Earth. I am not a fan of regular old flying in a plane and I CERTAINLY wouldn't even entertain the thought of venture out of the safety of our lovely oxygen-filled atmosphere. If the earth is going down, I'm going down with her.
For those of you who are perhaps not so "grounded", check out this quick animated timeline of the work completed on the International Space Station.
