From the soaring peaks of the Himalayas to Baltic algae blooms, Earth-observing satellites showcase the breathtaking and seemingly tactile beauty of our planet.

Have you ever been up in an airplane and looked out the window as you were flying across a mountain range or along a coastline or at night above a major city? Those sights can bestow a feeling of wonder and enchantment at the beauty of the world we live in and a sense of awe at how small we are in comparison.
