Earth from Space

Hello Readers!


Did you know that the first Earth Day was celebrated 50 years ago today? That's right! April 22, 1970.


Enjoy this Earth Day story. It is read to you by astronaut Koichi Wakata. He's one of the few people who has been off the Earth. Isn't it neat how the book just floats when he's not holding it?
