NASA

OUTER SPACE, FAR AWAY: The Apollo 17 crew caught this breathtaking view of our home planet as they were traveling to the Moon on Dec. 7, 1972. It's the first time astronauts were able to photograph the South polar ice cap. Nearly the entire coastline of Africa is clearly visible, along with the Arabian Peninsula. Look again at that unique Planet. That's home. That's us. That's the biggest complex system of life that we know. Everything that exists on earth in some way dependent on the other. From the smallest thing to the biggest one every single thing work perfectly in harmony, everything is balanced. “How big is God to create not just a beautiful Planet but a whole perfectly balanced big universe. Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. “ – Albert Einstein Image Credit: NASA
