(#19/24): “Vastness”

The International Space Station.

Our stepping stone to exploring beyond

The confines of our solar system.


The nations of the world

Continue to build this gateway to the stars,

Module by module.


And yet, this complex feat of science and engineering,

The largest man-made structure ever put into space,

Is still no bigger than a football field.


We are humbled by what we have yet to achieve.
