It must be strange and sort of terrifying to look down or at the world wholly, to be able to see the planet in all its glory and understand your own mortality, your own miniscule presence. Hadfield’s book presents a collection of pictures he took while at a space station from 2006 to 2008, I believe. The book archives a wonderful selection of pictures that show how beautiful and at the same time, how terrifying, our planet is. Hadfield’s accompanying commentary is humourous and insightful giving a glimpse of the brilliant mind behind the book. Recommended.
