In a world of more than five billion people, only about 200 have made the journey into space. These astronauts and cosmonauts represent not only their countries, but all of mankind, and indeed all of life.

From space, life on earth appears to be one tightly integrated and coupled system. On earth, as in space, there are no boundaries; pollution travels freely through the common air that bathes the globe. Seen from space, our destructiveness is as vast as our technology. As continents pass by in minutes, these space explorers have a unique view of both the wonder and horror below.

Seventeen astronauts and cosmonauts from ten countries impress upon us how mysterious and fragile is "OUR PIANET EARTH", our only home.

Produced and directed by Mickey Lemle for the United Nations and the Canadian International Development Agency, with the cooperation of the Association for Space Explorers.Available in English, French and Spanish.
