These images are just a small selection from My Planet from Space: Fragility and Beauty.

The exhibition takes you on a journey to some of the most beautiful and remote places on Earth.

Satellites provide us with images of an ever-changing Earth: glaciers melting, sea levels rising, rainforests threatened by deforestation, growing desertification affecting croplands, and uncontrolled urban sprawl. They highlight the importance of spaceborne technology in the management and protection of natural resources and the global environment.

The exhibition debuted at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome in 2014. It has also been featured at the UN Headquarters in New York City and the National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, Italy.
