This majestic National Geographic photography book offers a spectacular view of Earth from outer space, featuring aerial imagery taken from the International Space Station by NASA astronaut Terry Virts. Few people get the experience of seeing the world from outer space—and no one has taken as many pictures of Earth from above as Terry Virts. Celebrated NASA astronaut, pilot of the space shuttle, crew member on Soyuz, and commander of the International Space Station, Virts has spent more than 200 days in space—and very few of those days went by without his reaching for his camera.

Now as never before, Virts shares the astronaut’s view of the world, offering astounding aerial views of our planet and the vastness that surrounds it. The colors, shapes, details—and the stories they tell—are endlessly fascinating. Virts’s book marries his stunning photographs with glimpses of everyday life in orbit. And amid this amazing show of Earth spectacles, he reflects on how the astronaut’s point of view has shaped his life and spirit. Filled with magnificent photographs that will astonish and inspire, this book—and its intrepid author—becomes our guide to a new way of looking at the world.
