JUST RELEASED: NASA is calling this the "Most Amazing High Definition Image of Earth" available! #NASA #EarthHighRes

NASA Releases New Super High-Res Shot of Earth 0 Tweet by Michael dEstries January 25, 2012 Remember that picture of Earth NASA released back in 2010 that was trumpeted as “the most accurate, highest resolution true color image of planet Earth to date”?
