'Sometimes we need a new perspective. I want people to see the wonder of the world from above; perhaps as an eagle sees it from a mountain aerie, a pilot from the cabin of his airplane or the astronaut from the surface of the moon. A mufti-hued orb spinning among thousands of other stars, yet unique'
