|Divided by continent, You Are Here represents one (idealized) orbit of the ISS. This planetary photo tour—surprising, playful, thought-provoking, and visually delightful—is also punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity. In the spirit of An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, You Are Here opens a singular window on our planet, using remarkable photographs to illuminate the history and consequences of human settlement, the magnificence (and wit) of never-before-noticed landscapes, and the power of the natural forces shaping our world and the future of our species. |
