The Home Earth

In the early 1990's, Sara Tweedie designed a very popular poster based on this visualization by Dave Pape. The poster depicted a very large version of this image with the word 'Earth' above the image and the phrase 'There's no place like home' below it. There was a rumor that the posters were offered for sale by the Tennessee Valley Authority at one point.
