We live on an amazing planet. And although many people may not appreciate the world in which we dwell, looking at it from afar may instigate a renewed respect for Earth.
Many children dreamt of one day growing up to become astronauts. Yet they’d have more chance of winning the lottery than ever realising such aspirations. Luckily, those who have reached those heady heights had access to a camera and took these incredible pictures of Earth from space, so the rest of us get a taste of what it would be like to walk in the great void.
