Earth

Postcard courtesy of NASA. Narrative courtesy of Alessandro T. (age 10).

The name planet comes from the word meaning "wanderer". I wonder if this is due to the fact that planets move around in the sky? This is what my mind is doing at the moment, wandering. Lying in bed, I am thinking about all the items in the sky still waiting to be explored and found. My mom is wondering when I'm going to go to sleep. Astronomy class has definitely sparked an interest in space for me! - The End

Caption: A view of the Earth as seen by the Apollo 17 crew traveling toward the Moon. This is the first time the Apollo trajectory made it possible to photograph the south polar ice cap. Note the heavy cxloud cover in the southern hemnisphere. Almost the entire coastline of Africa is clearly visible.

Alessandro T. is a 10 year old home schooled student in New Zealand.
