'The Orbital Perspective' by Ron Garan

Nov 13, 2015

For astronaut Ron Garan, living on the International Space Station was a powerful, transformative experience—one that he believes holds the key to solving our problems here on Earth. It gave him what he calls, the orbital perspective.

In his new book, The Orbital Perspective: Lessons in Seeing the Big Picture from a Journey of 71 Million Miles, Garan conveys what it was like learning to work with a diverse group of people, in an environment only handful of human beings have ever known.
