The Home Planet: Astronaut’s Photos

The Gateway To Astronaut Photography

“We catch a glimpse of a huge swirl of clouds out the window over the middle of the Pacific Ocean, or the boot of Italy jutting down into the Mediterranean, or the brilliant blue coral reefs of the Caribbean strutting their beauty before the stars. And…we experienced those uniquely human qualities: awe, curiosity, wonder, joy, amazement.” (Russell L. Schweickart, Apollo Astronaut (“The Home Planet”)
