Earth From Space

Each day, high above the clouds, dozens of sophisticated imaging satellites circle the earth. These high-tech machines are capable of capturing extraordinary conditions and events which are nearly impossible to document from the surface of the planet. Satellite technology allows geologists, meteorologists, and other scientists to acquire precise, up-to-date images that illustrate how the earth changes from day to day and year to year. Recording environmental cycles, natural disasters, and man-made ecological effects, satellite images provide clues about the dynamic nature of our planet.
