Cameras have been essential tools since the beginning of space exploration. Think of the icon images from the Apollo moon walk or those created by the Hubble space telescope. A remote sensing camera can view features in light wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the infrared and see details invisible to the human eye. Many photographs from space could easily grace an art galley wall. Here are several recent examples:
