A Presentation of the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum and Lockheed Corporation in Association with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
|From the unique vantage point of 200 miles above Earth's surface, we see how natural forces - volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes - affect our world, and how a powerful new force - humankind - has begun to alter the face of the planet. From Amazon rain forests to Serengeti grasslands, Blue Planet inspires a new appreciation of life on Earth, our only home.|
"...[presents] the Earth as a whole, as a home, as a living organism. Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
Editor's NoteFilmed by astronauts from five space shuttle missions, this video gives the viewer an understanding of the forces affecting earth's fragile ecological balance through volcanoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and ultimately, humankind.
