Liftoff to Learning: Geography From Space DLESE Reviewed Collection
This video takes the viewer on a rapid tour of Earth's surface as seen from outer space. After explaining how the altitude of the viewer affects the amount of Earth's surface seen at one time, the video moves into a travelogue on some of the interesting features of Earth's continents as seen from space. Because the inclination of the Space Shuttle's orbit to Earth's equator did not carry the crew over Antarctica or the Arctic, these regions are not visited in the program. Length: 15:00.
