Planet Earth – Glance from the Outer Space

Being an astronaut is, perhaps, the most widely-spread wishes among the little boys. Indeed, who would refuse a chance to rise up to the stars and have a look at our Planet Earth from the orbit? Actually, this opportunity today is much closer to people than ever before. You don’t even need to become an astronaut: spaceships for space travelers are already built and tickets are on sale… Though, if you are not ready yet to invest USD 20-35 millions into a space trip, you can still enjoy the pictures, taken from the outer space, featuring our home Planet Earth. By the way, with the so-called suborbital flights, a chance to look at the Earth from 100-160 km height may cost just as little as 200 000 USD.

While you consider real space travelling, Cruzine offers you today an absolutely free virtual journey to the open space via the collection of amazing photographs, featuring Planet Earth. Captured from the outer space, our planet appears in absolutely new look. Its atmosphere charms with fabulously-colored twists and textures. It is an interesting effect – looking at the images of oceans and continents, which are minimized from the space, only increases the feeling of grandeur and magnificence of our Planet Earth. Atmosphere cyclones and clouds, mountains and rivers – space photography display them in an absolutely new way. It is like looking at the familiar things from the absolutely new angle. Enjoy!
