Description

Earth from Space provides a global view like no other. It presents our planet from a spectacular perspective, captures the diversity of life that exists around the globe, and takes us on a fascinating journey of discovery. Since the beginning of human history, we have sought a better understanding of the world around us. Thanks to the newest generation of satellites we can appreciate the beauty of the Earth as never before. Earth from Space includes 300 spectacular satellite images: glaciers and forests, hurricanes and volcanic eruptions, the Grand Canyon and the Pyramids, rain forests and coral reefs, ecological disasters and war zones, and places of spectacular beauty - viewed at different scales by orbiting satellites. The structure of land surfaces, the effects of human and natural forces, and the ways in which our planet is changing can be clearly seen and understood. Much more than a collection of extraordinary images, Earth from Space includes background information that explains the tools of the trade and maps that place the photos in context. Individually, the pictures capture every aspect of our dynamic planet. Collectively, they provide us with a unique and unparalleled view of the Earth, our home in space.
