Terra - 15 Amazing Aerial Photos and Images
Agricultural, urban, forest, desert, snow, covered with water or flowers – are all surfaces of Earth, the planet billions of chips, which surprises us every time we look at it. Magnificent in its huge diversity, diversity that we have increased it by many and varied changes that we made our cosmic home – with consequences of rigor, of course – Terra remains, for us, today’s level of knowledge, a planet in the universe unparalleled. Despite repeated notices by the discovery of a celestial body “Earth-like” nothing that we know so far leads us to be confident that somewhere there may be from the most primitive unicellular creatures up to higher vertebrates, all beings have shaped Earth, making it as it is today. The dynamics of this vital process is reflected in every aspect of the planet.

Man’s Contributions: coloured carpets, rigorously drawn with a ruler, Dutch flower crops, concrete and glass jungle of big cities vertical cut ribbons of asphalt roads that deep and lasting change landscape …
