From Earth Path, Space Space Astronauts have the best view of earth.

Starting today, there has been a continuous human presence in space, aboard the International Space Station, for 18 years and 171 days. This is the longest stretch of our species history.

Dormant and active volcanoes reveal the prevailing winds of our planet.

The volcanic ash from the erupting peak swarms the snow on not only the outbreaking mountain, but also its closest neighbors. Dormant and active volcanoes can both be seen from the International Space Station, as the copy shown here by Kamchatka in Russia illustrates very convincingly.

Our planet’s largest rivers cut through the land.

While a glance at the picture may suggest that this is the Amazon River, it is actually one of the more than 11,100 side lives flowing into it. The Amazon is one river that carries more water than anyone else on earth.

Glaciers and ice meltings reveal a seasonal cyclical plane.

Unfortunately, the patagonian glaciers in South America are among the fastest meltings in the world, but their beauty is undeniable. Just a few minutes earlier, the ISS fled to a tropical rainforest and showed how small our planet is.

Windy traits common to gas giants occur in our clouds.

These functions, often found in clouds over the oceans, occur when you have a boundary where the air moves at different speeds relative to each other in different regions. Similar features can generally be seen along Saturn’s and Jupiter’s bounded atmospheric structures.

The lakes seem multicolored depending on the organisms and minerals found within them.

These two lakes, the small cyan one on the left and the big blue on the right, are on the top of the Tibetan plateau. The smaller lake is the founder and is probably populated with algae or certain minerals that can give it its unique color.

While collapsed volcanoes reveal hundreds of millions of years of geology.

Known as the Richat structure, this is an old, collapsed volcanic dome, where the oldest parts are dated before the Cambrian era, but the youngest parts are “only” about 400 million years old. In contrast, the dunes shift on both sides of a look in just a few days.

Atolls show the dilapidated beauty of erosion and life.

Although this may appear as if the Superman logo has hit a watery grave, you actually see the last stages of an island formed through volcanism because it crumbles and erodes. This structure is known as an atoll, and the outer parts of it are actually coral reefs that grow up along the continental shelf. Eventually, everything that remains of the Atafu Atoll will be displayed here, and all such structures on earth.

Everything while our thin atmosphere makes biology possible.

From the onboard ISS, the various layers in our atmosphere, the transient clouds are within it and the filtered light from our sun that passes through it constitutes one of the 16 sunrises and sunsets the astronauts on board experience each day.

Our constant monitoring shows unambiguously & nbsp; human caused soil changes.

Planet Earth, seen in its entirety (as much as one can see at once) from the GOES-13 satellite, has experienced many changes since we first began to continuously monitor our world from space.

And a uniquely rotating, rotating plane.

The Mercury-bound MESSENGER spacecraft captured several stunning images of the Earth during a gravitational shift of its home plane on August 2, 2005. Several hundred images taken with the wide-angle camera of the MESSENGER Mercury Dual Imaging System (MDIS) were sequenced in a movie documenting the view from MESSENGER as it resigned the earth. Yes, it is around and yes it rotates on its axis and rotates around the sun.

Still daring further away, the Earth’s cosmic insignificance reveals.

The first conception of man’s eyes Earth rises above the limb of the moon. The discovery of the Earth from space, with human eyes, remains one of the most iconic achievements of our species history. Apollo 8, which occurred in December 1968, was one of the most important precursor missions to a successful Moon Landing, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in July.

From interplanetary space, our details become blurred and fuzzy.

When the Voyager 1 spacecraft left the earth, it looked back and took this photo: The first time a photograph of the earth and the moon was in the same frame and both showed for a half month. This image was recorded on September 18, 1977, at a distance of 11.7 million miles from Earth.

At the distance from Mars, the earth and the moon are still impressive.

From one of the most successful missions to Mars, Mars Global Surveyor took some time to look back on Earth, revealing the Earth and the Moon separately, in color and with multiple pixels. This may not seem like a particularly impressive picture, but remember that this was taken at a distance of more than 70 million kilometers away.

As seen from Mercury, we are almost always in a complete phase.

Earth is just a featureless, unclear sphere seen from the Messenger spacecraft, circulating around the planet Mercury.

But when we dare on outer planets, we are hardly a speck.

] Taken by the Cassini spacecraft with the sun hidden behind Saturn, this backlit image of our solar system’s large ringed world contains a bonus: a few pixels that reveal the Earth-Moon system. This is one of the most remote photographs of the Earth ever taken, but it still reveals our world as larger than a single pixel.

From the edge of the solar system we are hardly visible at all.

This narrow-angle color image of the earth, called “Pale Blue Dot”, is part of the first ever “portrait” of the solar system as Voyager 1. From Voyager’s great distance, the Earth is a single point of light, smaller than the size of a pixel , even in the narrow angle camera. The Earth was a half moon just 0.12 pixels in size. Temporarily, the soil is just in the middle of one of the scattered light rays resulting from the image being taken so close to the sun.

In the whole universe, only the earth is home to humanity.
