My Planet from Space Exhibit to Open in Rome

ROME, Italy, Sept. 18, 2014—An upcoming exhibition at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome, Italy, opening on 30 September is titled My Planet from Space: Fragility and Beauty. The exhibit takes you on a journey to some of the most beautiful and remote places on Earth. The collection of images demonstrates the fragility of our planet and the challenges posed by climate change.

Satellite eyes 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.

Pictures taken from the International Space Station by ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano will also be displayed.

The exhibition will run 30 September to 2 November. For more information, visit the Palazzo delle Esposizioni website.
