Blue Planet reveals the Earth to us as only few people have ever seen it: from space. Orbiting 200 miles above Earth’s surface, we can see familiar landforms: the majestic Himalayas, giant Namib Desert sand dunes, jewel-like Caribbean islands. From the unique vantage point of 200 miles above Earth’s surface, we see how natural forces â€” volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes – affect our world, and how a powerful new force – humankind – has begun to alter the face of the planet. From Amazon rain forests to Serengeti grasslands, Blue Planet inspires a new appreciation of life on Earth, our only home.
