The Earth: NASA Images from Space
Edited by Amherst Media
The Earth: NASA Images from Space is a book with a collection of over 180 gorgeous images compiled from instrument data of NASA and their world-class collaborators. Some of these instruments are sensitive to the visual range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Other instruments record other wavelengths such as ultraviolet and infrared. Colors are assigned to portions of data to make images that portray our Earth with visual imagery. Details of the Earth from above show forest fires, floods, hurricanes, parks, cloud formations, the great cities of the world, sleepy backwaters, reefs, oceans, glaciers, snow capped mountains, archaeological sites, and transportation highways.

Our understanding is transformed as we can truly see events like algae blooms, carbon emissions, crop health, volcanic eruptions, and more. The images in this book are beautiful and genuinely artful. Images of Earth from space are shaping our current ideas, beliefs, and perspectives and pointing the way to our future.
