Between Us and Annihilation

Here is a wonderful photo montage of the earth released by NASA. It is composed of a number of shots taken by the new Suomi NPP Satelite, which was launched last October. You can see it online in much greater detail here.

What I want you to notice, however, is the thin blue line that appears to surround the globe. That paper thin blue line is the whole of our atmosphere, the only thing standing between us and annihilation. Perhaps we should take care of it.
