“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it.

“From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty.

“You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ” ‘Look at that, you [expletive deleted].’ ”

Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, People Magazine, 8 April 1974.
