Yesterday Elon Musk's (Ex- South African) Space X delivered a whole bunch of lettuce seeds, to be propagated in space,some white mice, to test the effectiveness of a drug being developed to counteract the effects of zero gravity on muscle tissue, and an inflatable 12 square meter room to the International Space Station. A couple of seeds, some mice and a big blow up doll, doesn't sound like much but the truth is this little cargo weighed in at over three tons. That's quite a big ball to throw into space when you think about it. Anyway that's enough about Space X, I'm trying to write about the International Space Station.
Just to finish off about my introduction to this post let me at least touch on Io.

And back to the International Space Station we go.
The International is the size of an American football field including the outfield. It's also the most expensive engineering construction coming in at a little over 100 billion Dollars. It is also the longest permanently inhabited orbiting structure.
There are various laboratories connected to the space station and the space station will be involved in all the human exploration endevours to the other planets in our solar system.
Truly a remarkable engineering accomplishment. Well done to all involved, you've done exceptionally well.

I'm inclined to wonder, when looking at the view from the I.S.S. at the world if this is what God sees when looking at his accomplishment or does he see it from further away.
May God bless those who visit the International Space Station and reveal to them just how immense He is and ho insignificant we are as individuals.
