Wow! I was blown away by the photos. Then I was blown away even more by astronaut Chris Hadfield’s commentary. As one reviewer says, “Chris sees more in these images than we do, not just because he’s spent months in space but because his in-depth knowledge of geology, geography and meteorology allows him to read the mysteries the photos reveal.”
Drawn from the best of 40,000 photos he took during five months orbiting around the earth, the book’s photo tour of the planet, continent by continent, is filled with beauty, whimsy and mystery. The images and Chris Hadfield’s comments illuminate the earth’s history, the impact of human settlement, and the power of the natural forces shaping our planet and the future of our species. I also enjoyed his comments about life in zero gravity.
You’ll feel like you know the earth – and the space around it – in a completely different way.
