Space Pictures and Pointers

Earth Satellite Pictures

A few sample pictures from various satellites and imaging technologies: Landsat, SIR-C, SPOT.

Hubble Telescope Pictures

For those who might still be skeptical about the Hubble Space Telescope, here are a few examples of its spectacular results.  I don't know about your eyes, but to mine, the detail, the colors, and the subtlety of the images is just astonishing compared with the best of earth-bound telescopes.  

These are just a tiny sample of the images available from Hubble.
