NASA films earth from 31 million miles away

cornholed cornholed writes  |  about 6 years ago

cornholed (1312635) writes "The website contains 2 very cool videos of the earth from 31 million miles away. From NASA website: NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft has created a video of the moon transiting (passing in front of) Earth as seen from the spacecraft's point of view 31 million miles away. Scientists are using the video to develop techniques to study alien worlds. "Making a video of Earth from so far away helps the search for other life-bearing planets in the Universe by giving insights into how a distant, Earth-like alien world would appear to us," said University of Maryland astronomer Michael A'Hearn, principal investigator for the Deep Impact extended mission, called EPOXI."
