Generalities and Detail…Views of Fragile and Divided Earth

07/04/2009

“We think in generalities…we live in detail.”- Alfred North Whitehead. 

With this collection of images are some of the planetary details we share.  

Astronaut Sunita Williams holds the record as the longest orbiting female, having circled Earth for 195 days aboard the International Space Station. Like famed space traveller John Glenn, Williams is from Ohio. Her pictures give impressive and unique views of the world, from dust storms to the approach of night…where we jointly emit signs of our existence to the galaxy surrounding us but give no clues of the vast differences separating our populations.
