You Are Here

Chris Hadfield's new book shows us our home - our city, country, continent, our whole planet - from a unique perspective. The millions of us who followed Chris's Twitter feed from the ISS thought we knew what we were looking at when we saw his photos. This gorgeous photo book shows us that we caught the beauty, but missed the meaning. Curated from images never before shared, Chris's big picture reveals why our planet looks the way it does and why we live where we do. Chris sees more in these images than we do not just because he's spent months in space but because his in-depth knowledge of geology, geography and meteorology allows him to read the mysteries the photos reveal. Divided by continent, You Are Here represents one (idealized) orbit of the ISS. This planetary photo tour - surprising, playful, thought-provoking and visually delightful - is punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity, too.
