Wonderful portrayal of planet Earth.
4 November 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I just saw this 42 minute IMAX DVD documentary on a Sony H.D. TV system. Breath taking views of the Earth from various Space Shuttle missions are especially captivating but so are the shots at the ground level and under water.

Highly recommended.
