Our Spaceship The Earth

Wed Feb 20, 2002 8:49 pm

This is really a sight to behold. The image is a panoramic view of the world from the new space station.

It is a night photo with the lights clearly indicating the populated areas. You can scroll East-West and North-South.

What a piece of photography. It is an absolutely awesome picture of the Earth taken from the Boeing built Space Station

Here's Scotty, I'll put it up for you, not that you could not.  Big thumbs up



Though I am reminded of a microscopic picture of a cancer cell, they look almost alike. Here's some irony for ya, could we be the death of earth someday?

And people think India is primitive and in poverty,  Yeah sure, it is as bright as Europe!  Laugh out loud

That's cool how they got the world to be all flat for that picture... I didn't feel a thing.

Lephron, that pic is about 400k. That's why it probably wan't posted in the first place.  Insane Sucks for people with dialup...
