As members of the human race, we call this chunk of rotating rock, fire, and ice home, and we should realize how amazing Earth is everyday, not just April 22nd. With that said, Earth Day has been celebrated worldwide since 1970, and has contributed greatly towards the spread of environmental awareness we see today. However, such a renowned appreciation of Earth — as it truly is, not as a map — didn’t take place until astronauts were able to gaze upon our planet during the early days of space exploration.On this day, we leave you with a great quote from Neil deGrasse Tyson regarding the historical context of this annual event.
