the most true-colour images of the entire world released to-date
The images of the Indian Ocean and North America were produced by astronomers at Nasa's using images from the Terra satellite more than 435 miles (700km) above the Earth's surface
The Blue Marble series was pieced together from thousands of images taken over many months by the satellite's remote sensing device MODIS, of every square kilometre of the Earth's surface.

Absolutely stunning pics!
What's a bit worrying is, after so much CGI in films, without trying to sound pessimistic, they do look CGI-ish.
Maybe because they look so good that nowadays, my brain has been conditioned to question any such image of such amazing clear quality.
Still, very nice find, mate

A planet so beautiful filled with people constantly destorying it and the greatest gift it provides: life.
The photos, while beautiful, hit me with a twinge of sadness knowing, individually we may care, but collectively we do very little to take care of our home or our brothers and sisters living in it.
