THE URBAN SCIENTIST

INTO THE ARCTIC KINGDOM

SOCIAL MAMMALS

VIEW FROM ABOVE
Presented by: National Geographic
Step back, about 220 miles from earth, and experience our planet from a new perspective. Former International Space Station Commander Terry Virts helped to install the outpost's 360-degree observation module, which not only helped him to take more phootos than any astronaut before him, but gives those who see the images a deeper understanding of our planet's climate, economics, and place in the universe.
