The planet earth has many different scenic views. None of them can match the view that NASA gets from space. NASA’s Earth Science Division has gathered a selection of photos taken from the satellites that are pointed to earth and compiled them into a book. “The spectacular images in this book remind us of the majestic beauty of our world,” said Lawrence Friedl, program director in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Earth Science Division in Washington. “We hope these images inspire everyone to explore, understand, and appreciate the planet we call home.” The 168 page book entitled “Earth” brings the collection into either a hardcover book, an ebook or an online option with interactive features. What make this special for the Uintah Basin? Of the featured photos is a section of the Green River canyon in eastern Utah known as Bowknot Bend because of the way the river doubles back on itself. The loop carries river rafters 14.5 kilometres before bringing them back to nearly the same point.
