"Men in Black" was Right


Remember this awesome scene at the end of the best alien movie of the 90's, Men in Black? We're all just marbles, in the great game of life.

Well images released recently from NASA of Earth continue the "blue marble" trend. Isn't this stunning? (Looks like the photos were taken during "thundersnow"--since the whole East is covered in clouds.)

Interested in the history of photography of the Earth from space?  View a timeline of Moon and Earth photos at The Daily Mail.

Also, you have got to check out Astronaut Soichi Noguchi's Twitter feed, wherein he links the most amazing photographs of different parts of the Earth taken from space.  I particularly love this one of Mt. Saint Michelle in Normandy.
