Great documentary but slightly misleading title
17 November 2012 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This film is highly informative but you should know what to expect. From the title one would think this film consist mainly of photography of Earth taken from orbit while the narrator tells us geographical information. Well, it is not like that.

The concept of this documentary is explaining the connections of various meteorological, geological and ecological processes with each other in one big system. Probably most of us are familiar with the powers of hurricanes on the Atlantic, or that there are dust storms in the Sahara or the Amazon River has the largest water flow, but how these things relate to each other on a global scale are not so trivial. This film shows us the big picture of Earth's system.

"From space" in our case refers to the source of this information. Most of these big global processes were discovered using satellites. The film includes many satellite imagery showing these models.
