People With No Names - The Undocumented #83
I just read about the Pope speaking with 12 astronauts circling Earth. One of the astronauts is Mark Kelly. His wife, a congresswoman, was shot in the head while attempting to connect with her constituents on Jan.8, 2011 at a Safeway grocery store in Tucson, Arizona. The Pope said that, "It must be obvious to you that we all live together on one Earth and how absurd it is that we fight and kill each other." Kelly told the pope that, "Borders cannot be seen from space", and noted that, "Down on Earth, people usually fight for resources. At the space station, solar power provides unlimited energy, and if those technologies could be adapted more on Earth, we could possibly reduce some of that violence."
