The more probes and people we send into space, the more views we have of ourselves from an ever-increasing distance. After all, NASA not only explores space, but studies Earth from space. That guitar-playing astronaut floating in the Cupola we showed you yesterday has a relatively close-up view compared with these images.
In the gallery below, you'll see the two highest-resolution composite photos of the Earth taken yet — click them for a high-resolution image. As we get farther and farther away from our planet, the final shot will be that "pale blue dot" image, taken from 3.7 billion miles away. Makes you feel small.
