**Alexei Leonov quotes**: *”The Earth was small, light blue, and so touchingly alone, our home that must be defended like a holy relic. The Earth was absolutely round. I believe I never knew what the word round meant until I saw Earth from space.”*

His name was Alexei Leonov . Apparently CNN doesn’t think his name is worth putting in the headline of the article about him.

Imagine what our discoveries could have been if the world could only stop stupid aggression and work together. RIP

One of the first brave explorers to venture out into the cold and dark, to see what was out there. Rest easy Major General Alexei Arkhipovich Leonov. The medal may have said “Hero of the Soviet Union,” but it should have read “Hero of Humanity.”

They probably should have sent up some air and food and stuff for him. 🤔
