Our Fragile Earth 1

Scott Kelly

Scott Kelly is an astronaut who has been in space for over 501 days, the longest time anyone has ever spent in space. He is studying the mental and physical toll that living on space has had on his body. He also had made an unexpected observation.

While in space, he noticed something about Earth’s atmosphere. Kelly said, “There are definitely parts of Asia, Central America that when you look at them from space, you’re always looking through a haze of pollution.” He stated that this is something that needs to be taken care of.

Pollution is putting harmful substances into the environment. Substances such as exhaust from cars, power lines, and pesticides are just some of the things that are hurting our planet on a daily basis.

If we want to have any chance to restore Earth, all these harmful things need to stop immediately.

Many people are not aware of what they can do to help reduce the amount of pollution we use in our everyday lives.

One obvious solution is to walk to places that are close by instead of driving, turning off lights, and unplugging your charger from the wall.
