How does the world look from outer space? Let Tim Peake's book tell you

A bird's-eye view of the whole world as seen from outer space, in under 240 pages. By an astronaut who dialed the wrong number and asked, 'Hello, Is This Planet Earth?'

That question is now the title of the same British astronaut Tim Peake's book (Hello, Is This Planet Earth? My View From The International Space Station) that takes you on a pictorial journey of the Earth from outer space. The book borrows from the time Peake was on a 186-day Principia mission aboard the International Space Station.

From stunning aerial shots of cities at night to the Northern Lights, the book showcases more than 150 of Peake's photographs, many of which have been published for the first time. The International Business Times quotes Peake as saying that, "It's impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet. During my mission, I became determined to share this unique perspective of the one place we all call 'home'. This book captures a journey of discovery, not just the discovery of planet Earth - a stunning oasis of life in the vastness of space - but also the discovery of a newfound passion for photography, which has had a major impact on me."
