Image of earth from space

There's no better view of the earth than the one you get from space. The European Space Agency's mission is to 'find out more about Earth, its immediate space environment, our Solar System and the Universe', and as such, every year it produces thousands of high-resolution images of earth from orbit. In this slideshow we've picked a selection of the most stunning images from the ESA's website.

The ESA's website (which, unlike NASA's US government-funded site, is still online) will be hosting the latest of the agency's 'ESA Live' broadcasts from space tomorrow, October 11th at 10:00 CEST.
