FALL IN LOVE: NASA HIGH DEFINITION EARTH PICTURE


Fall in love with our gorgeous planet all over again. How lucky are we on this beautiful blue orb? Here's NASA's recent release of its high-definition photo. And remember the one we all flipped out over when it was on the cover of the Whole Earth Catalogue--taken from Apollo 17?

One has romance, one has clarity; we need both.



I never thought about AIR from a design point of view, but now that I'm gazing at this floating sphere, I'm thinking: Hey, we have air that is perfectly proportioned, each element balanced for optimum life. Air pollution is a design problem--and the catastrophic speeding up of earth's global warming is a result of air pollution. Or rather, it is a problem of ruining what was a gorgeous design that makes possible the life we cherish.

Stunning photo and a very perceptive last line there, thank you! Whole Earth Catalog -- now there's a Trip
back in time.
