Our beautiful land

This is not Pluto, Venus, or Mars, this is our Earth. See the extraordinarily beautiful landscapes of our planet, which were captured from space by astronaut Scott Kelly. An American astronaut has been working at the International Space Station for six months, and in his free time, he takes pictures of our planet and shows its amazing beauty.
