These gorgeous images were taken by Landsat 5 – a satellite that has spent the last 29 years orbiting our earth.
It circled our planet over 150 000 times. Watching as we were born, died, celebrated, went to war, danced and cried. And captured over 2.5million images of our world’s terrain on the way. From a perspective that most of us will never be able to experience.
Landsat 5’s journey was meant to last three years – but it kept going until a broken gyroscope put it out of commission. Its legacy lives on in these stunning images.
