Earth, Spirit of Place: Featuring the Photographs of Chris Hadfield (Paperback) by John McQuarrie (Editor) , Chris Hadfield (Photographer)

Like millions of you, I have taken great delight in following Chris Hadfield since his Soyuz launch in 2012. It is now a great privilege to produce and publish this book celebrating a selection of over 100 of Chris's beautiful and evocative photographs captured during his five months on the International Space Station (ISS). Complementing his images, you will also find a number of NASA satellite shots captured by various orbital platforms over the last few years. As astronaut Marc Garneau put it; "Hadfield brought the space station and the space experience to a large number of people by sharing not only his pictures and his comments on Twitter, but also by sharing his emotions and that's something that people really want to hear about." Astronauts on board the International Space Station have many tasks, but a consistent favorite is taking photographs of Earth. The ISS astronauts don't just take digital images randomly. The photos they shoot are part of a well-defined program of data collection coordinated through the Crew Earth Observations team at Johnson Space Center. Current research targets include glaciers, deltas, urban areas, coral reefs, megafans (inland deltas), and long-term ecological monitoring sites. Dynamic events such as hurricanes, dust storms, volcanic eruptions, and fires are also imaged when possible. Astronauts also document the growth and change of human-made features, such as cities. The database of astronaut photography is freely accessible via the Internet and has made this book possible. "Flying in space, I was endlessly moved by the inherent, unstoppable beauty of our planet Earth. This book does a marvelous job of bringing that rare beauty home for all to see. Worth many long looks."
