    These videos are so beautiful and popular I wish there were a camera launched eg twice as far as the ISS with a continuous live HD feed back to everyone

    • Al Gore once suggested doing just that, but I guess launchinga a war on terror was more important.

    • Andy Lee Robinson Says:

      Was just awesome – and to think we live in that thin film of gas as atmospheric bottom-dwellers…

      Completely agree – an 8k UHD webcam on the moon looking at Earth 24×7 must be made a priority.

      Added bonus is that in the event of a calamatous asteroid impact, someone sometime may get a great view of the end of our epoch!

    What I find horrific is that the whole Earth is lit up like a Christmas tree at night and most of it represents the burning of carbon.
    Brings home the enormous scale of our impact and makes a mockery – if any were needed – of the “Humans are too puny to affect the climate”(TM) meme.

  3. Those images are fake! Everyone knows that the Earth is flat. Those so-called “scientists” at NASA just want us to believe it’s round in order to promote their New World Order.

    Thankfully, we have brave web sites like WUWT to bring us The Truth.

  4. When I look at videos of Earth from the ISS, my mind always brings out two immediate observations:

    1) The atmosphere is really a very thing sliver on top of the planet.
    2) Humans are practically everywhere, nighttime looks like a xmas tree…

    There is a good documentary on “The Overview Effect” that many astronauts get and affect their life. I think we should all experience this, even if its just through cameras. It really is only only place to live, and rather fragile too.

    Atm I am reading Bill Brysons excellent book “A Short History of Nearly Everything”, and its striking that so much of past species has gone extinct before us, partially to get us this far, although it does not seem we have evolved long enough to reflect on this with how we go about ruining our habitat.

    One prospective outcome of ‘Unlimited Growth’, but of course impossible absent other several planets for producing raw materials, electrical power and sustenance, was included in Stephen Hawking’s book ‘Universe in a Nutshell’ on page 159..

    But we all know the Earth will be cooking long before that, impossible, point is reached.
