A 5-Disc Collection
Blue Planet reveals the Earth to us as only few people have ever seen it: from space. Orbiting 200 miles above Earth's surface, we can see familiar landforms: the majestic Himalayas, giant Namib desert sand dunes, jewel-like Caribbean islands. From this unique vantage point we see how natural - volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes -affect our planet, and how a powerful new - humankind - has begun to alter the face of the Earth. From Amazon rain forests to Serengeti grasslands, Blue Planet inspires a new appreciation of life on Earth, our only home.
