human habitation of space

from "The International Space Station (ISS) hit a milestone for human spaceflight Wednesday, marking five years of continuous human habitation in Earth orbit."

all that space exploration stuff, all that sci-fi, has begun in our lifetime. this is human evolution on the largest scale. there will forever more be humans in space.

which is cool and all, but you wouldn't get me up there unless there was a very good reason. i like green meadows and warm breezes.
