When I look at this gorgeous image, I see the curvature of the Earth; the Raleigh scattering that gives the sky its blue hue; the condensed droplets of water that comprise the fluffy white clouds; the plate tectonics that drive mountain formation and all the delicate layers of Earth’s protective, but fragile atmosphere. I see each and every last law that governs the universe - and everything in it - coming together to make this view possible.. I see nothing but science. What about you?
