SPACE – UNDATED: The earth. Updating NASA’s awe inspiring ‘Blue Marble’ series of images of Earth from space, the 2012 version is «The most amazing highest resolution of Earth ever’, according to the Space Agency. Taken from the VIIRS (The visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite) imaging instrument aboard NASA’s recently launched Suomi NPP satellite, the beautiful picture is a composite image taken on January 4th 2012. The Suomu NPP is named after the late Verner E. Suomi of Wisconsin University who was known as the father of satellite meteorology. This image is the latest in a line of space photography of Earth which began on December 7, 1972, when the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft snapped our planet from a distance of 28,000 miles.
