Earth Observation from Space

This short video clip from Our Space shows Richard Garriott during his mission to the International Space Station, and what the Earth looks like when viewed from space. He takes a photograph of the stunning Palm Island development in Dubai, an example of the sort of information-gathering which can be done from space and used to study human impact on the environment.
