Transcript: Space Probes "Earth Views 1" | Oct 07, 2004A black opening slate reads "Earth Views 1."

An orbital view of the Earth from the hatch of the Shuttle shows it upside down,
with the shuttle tail fin in the foreground.
Over different spectacular orbital views of the Earth, captions read "We are all children of
this Universe. Ray Bradbury"... "Astronomy compels the soul to look upward, and
leads us from this world to another. Plato"... "The origin of life appears at the
moment to be almost a miracle. Francis Crick"... "Earth arose suddenly, just like
a cloud, like a mist, now forming, unfolding. Mayan Creation Myth"... "We are ancients
of the Earth, and in the morning of our times. Alfred Tennyson"... "The Universe, too, loves
to create whatsoever is destined to be made. Marcus Aurelius"... "Enclosed and safe within
its central heart, nestles the seed of perfection. Walt Whitman." The orbital view
includes an open-hatched Shuttle seen from another artificial satellite.
