Stunning “Earth As Art” Photos from NASA Now A Free eBook

Two years ago we featured images of our planet taken by NASA satellites. As David noted , "The intense detail captured by the Landsat-7 satellite—and the thermal gradients illustrated by NASA's Terra Satellite's Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer—show earth for what it is: A fragile work of art." Now, NASA is providing these images in book format , both as a printed version you can purchase and as a free eBook. NASA /Public Domain "The 158-page book celebrates the aesthetic beauty of Earth in the patterns, shapes, colors and textures of the land, oceans, ice and atmosphere. Images include snow-capped mountain peaks in the Himalayas, Arizona's Painted Desert, the Mississippi River Delta spreading into the Gulf of Mexico, a Saharan dune sea in Algeria, and Byrd Glacier in Antarctica," states NASA's press release .
