On The Rough Guide to Everywhere podcast (iTunesSoundcloud) we’ve spoken to some of the world’s most intrepid explorers. Our guests have crossed continents, sailed oceans and cycled thousands of miles. But this week we hear from a man who has a wider view of the planet: the view from outer space.

In this episode we caught up with NASA astronaut, Don Thomas, who talks vividly about the view from the window during his 700 orbits around Earth. Don also shares the music he listens to while in space, and explains why he sees humans as “earthlings”.
