"Earth From Space" is a groundbreaking two-hour special that reveals a spectacular new space-based vision of our planet.

Produced in extensive consultation with NASA scientists, NOVA takes data. Like ordinary space satellites, weather satellites are man-made objects that are launched into space and left to circle, or orbit, the Earth. Except instead of transmitting data back to Earth that powers your television, XM radio, or GPS navigation system on the ground, they transmit weather and climate data that they "see" back to us in pictures.

The book covers all aspects of space, space crafts, space travel, exploration of other planets, both radio astronomy and optical telescope astronomy.

Plus it has star charts to assist with locating objects by star hopping for both the north and southern s:   Stormy Weather Scrubs Historic Rocket Launch at Kennedy Space Centerpm EDT Weather scrubed the SpaceX Crew Dragon launch.

Finding clear weather over Europe is a rare occurrence, so when the skies cleared over Denmark, the crew of the International Space Station took advantage. In space, it allows astronauts to compensate for the movement of the Space Station relative to the Earth below.

The careful coordination keeps the targeted city in the same position in the camera’s field of view during the long exposure, even though both the station and Earth’s surface are moving.
