On several Shuttle missions, Earth has been portrayed from places that nobody else could reach. We also get shown the different locations and the environmental problems mankind created there because of our wish to exploit our planet for our own benefit. Written by

This was my first IMAX film and I later bought it on DVD. I am surprised how critical some are of this film. It is fantastic. I have never seen the earth this way and the revelations that the film makes clear about drought and ecological damage are brought home in the visuals. But more than that, the film lets the audience revel in the planet we call home as seen from outside. It is a truly humbling experience to see the vast oceans and continents and to put the whole planet in perspective. I admit that it loses something on a smaller screen but it is still great. On IMAX it is a spectacular event and one I will never forget. I still think and talk about it more than 15 years after I first saw it.
