You Are Here
Chris Hadfield
Price  999.00
From the author of the international bestseller An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth - an unforgettable photographic portrait of the planet we call home, as seen from Space.
"Chris Hadfield's new book shows us our home-our city, country, continent, our whole planet-from a unique perspective. The millions of us who followed Chris's Twitter feed from the ISS thought we knew what we were looking at when we saw his photos. This photo documentary shows us we didn't. We caught the beauty but missed the meaning. 

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 punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity, too. In the spirit of his #1 bestselling 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.
