Luckily for us, many of the views are not only deeply informative but also awe-inspiring. A selection of some of the best views of Earth from space in 2012 can be seen in the video compilation. Included in the collection are satellite images, data visualizations, supercomputer model simulations and time-lapse observations of our planet captured by astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
