9780201151978: The Home Planet

Prepared under the aegis of the Association of Space Explorers and in cooperation with the Soviet agency Mir, The Home Planet conveys as no book ever has the human dimension of space exploration, and the deeply personal response to our terrestrial home which space travel awakens.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is a collection of 150 photographs of Earth taken from space, accompanied by quotes from members of the Association of Space Explorers, a multi-national group of astronauts and cosmonauts. The pictures are spectacular: an "Earthrise," as seen from the moon; the mountain ranges, canyons, coastlines, cloud formations, tropical storms, volcanos, oceans, deserts and deltas of the Earthphotographed from thousands of miles above our planet's surface. So precise is the view that we see a plankton bloom, in an amazing inversion of scale, off the coast of New Zealand. The space explorers' commentson their experiences, their common realization of the camaraderie of all of Earth's citizens and of the fact that the Earth is fragile and too precious to be wastedrange in eloquence, but are uniformly affecting and well-intentioned: "The first day or so we all pointed to our countries. The third or fourth day we were pointing to our continents. By the fifth day we were aware of only one Earth," says a Saudi Arabian. "We went to the moon as technicians; we returned as humanitarians," declares an American. " . . . I understood that we are all sailing in the same boat," observes a Russian. 166,000 first printing; first serial to Life; Literary Guild a lternate .

From Library Journal:

This is an oversized browsing book filled with magnificent pictures taken from space. As can be guessed from its title, most of the photographs are of portions of the earth's surface. The concise text consists of short quotations from astronauts and cosmonauts describing the emotional impact of being in space. Naturally, the comments are predominantly from Americans and Soviets, but among the 18 nations represented are France, Germany, Syria, and India. Each commentary is given in the speaker's native language with an English translation. A truly beautiful book. Harold D. Shane. Baruch Coll., CUNY
