Art Photos from Space

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Monday, May 19, 2014/Categories: natural history, photography, space science, art and design

Cameras have been essential tools since the beginning of space exploration. Think of the  images from the moon walk or the Hubble space telescope. A remote sensing camera can view features in wavelengths of light from the ultraviolet to the infrared and see details obscured from the human eye. Many of the captured images could easily fit on an art galley wall.

Here are several recent examples of 'art photos from space':
