The beauty of the image must be why no one seems to have noticed the glaring typo at the top.

But it has to be fake, you cannot see the stars! (well at least that is what the fake moon landing people say....)

Remember this was taken in January 4th which is during the wintertime so I wouldn't expect much green at this time of year. lol

[citation][nom]greghome[/nom]I'd prefer if they had taken a picture of Africa North America looks so boring and dry[/citation]

Got to agree on that one. World's biggest continent has way way more features of interest, although, the great lakes are pretty nice in the North America.

The US looks like 1 giant plain from space.

There's a whole website dedicated to gigapixel photo's and it would be awesome to see one of the Earth.

Even from space, you can't see any thing that we have built...
We are so arrogant to think that we are the rulers of this world...

[citation][nom]back_by_demand[/nom]I thought China was on the other side of the Pacific?[/citation]

If the whole world was as heavy on resources as US we would need 5 Earths to survive. Fact. Not sure about China, since they don't even publish proper data.

So this is what we get for our hundreds of millions in taxes? I think it could have been better spent.

China consumes resources like it's going out of style, plus they have much more lenient environmental laws, so they pollute way worse than the US.
