Piers' Last Mission

With limited time, a renewed mission, CNN

"Astronaut Piers Sellers tells Fareed he's decided to carry on with his work on climate change after receiving heart-breaking medical news."

Cancer and Climate Change, opinion, NY Times

"As for me, I've no complaints. I'm very grateful for the experiences I've had on this planet. As an astronaut I spacewalked 220 miles above the Earth. Floating alongside the International Space Station, I watched hurricanes cartwheel across oceans, the Amazon snake its way to the sea through a brilliant green carpet of forest, and gigantic nighttime thunderstorms flash and flare for hundreds of miles along the Equator. From this God's-eye-view, I saw how fragile and infinitely precious the Earth is. I'm hopeful for its future. And so, I'm going to work tomorrow."
