Most of us will never get to space, but at least we have videos that show us what it’s like to touch the void.

These are scary times we’re living in now. Between climate change, literal Nazis running amok, the fate of Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance, conspiracy theorists, the fear of getting gunned down every time you leave your house, and a reckless president who seems to be attempting to incite civil war if upcoming elections don’t shake out the way he wants—not to mention the ongoing conflict in Syria and other parts of the world—things are looking pretty grim! But what if I told you that there’s a possibility that, someday, maybe none of that will matter? It’s true! According to […]
