The picture is impressive indeed; and BTW, nobody stripped off the EXIF data.

Bad motiv for sure. What is that on the left side, part of the spacecraft? He should have repositioned.

Well....that is what happens when you use lowest bidder government contract equipment to take pictures ....  

The last time I was with Alan Pointdexter (current mission commander) he was checking out my camera ..I like to think he was wishing he had that brand in orbit  

Just kidding by the way on the camera brand... I think most of us Earth bound homo sapiens would give a few body parts for that vantage point!

As far as free photos, most NASA-owned photos are unlicensed and have very few restrictions on use, but they request (not require) image credit. ISS photos of earth usually all end up here after a while:


How much you want to bet that by "send to media across the world," Lianna24 means "offer for sale what they can legitimately get for free."

In fact, it looks like the full 12 MP (unedited) version is already up. Hopefully this search link works and doesn't change:

I also found a similar photo (on film) taken on STS-39 back in 1991
