Default Possibly the 2nd best picture from space ever.

http://colchrishadfield.tumblr.com/p...planet-we-have



I think the 1st is "Earth Rise" from Apollo 8 but this is up there!

Check out Earth Rise and tell me that we should keep destroying the only place in the universe we can live.

That is a great picture. I love how you can see the edge of the atmosphere in it. Very cool.

This is my favourite, taken by Harrison Schmitt on the last Apollo mission, also the most requested picture from NASA archives in history.



My 2nd favourite is this one, the Hubble Ultra deep field.

I can honestly say I have better hair that Bill Pulman, my hair right now is approaching Michael Douglas Epicness on good hair days if I get it just right and my colic in the back stays down.

Well played. I bought the Apollo 17 pic for a friend's office years ago and he still has it.

The Deep field shot is amazing. One look at that and you know we cannot be alone.

The Eagle Nebula is my favorite. From the top of the biggest cloud to the bottom is 7 light years long. The tiny finger at the top is bigger than our solar system.

As in you don't believe any other place can sustain life or we're stuck here because the lack of technology?

Deep Field one is humbling. All of that looks so close together, but they are millions of lightyears apart.

Now they think there could be several planets for every star in the sky. Just think what could be out there. Someone should make a show about man exploring the galaxy in a spaceship.

I'm waiting for mankind to explore Mars, find a 50,000 year old science facility and then find out Pluto is actually a giant mass effect drive that will propel us out unto the universe.

I'm as big a space nerd and junkie as they come but I don't see what's so amazingly great about this picture you're calling the 2nd best ever. There are plenty of pics with the earth and moon together.


I'll have to give this image here a nod over yours. You got the earth, the atmosphere, an eclipse going on and you can see the milkyway center also.

Hey BroncoSteven, listen to the album "The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place." and look at some space pictures.
