Earth Day started for a large part due to these images of Earth from space. The photographs are both scientific and artistic. They stir our hearts as we realize the beauty, finiteness and fragility of our planet. They create in us an ecological consciousness. At AwE we need to recognize the immense power of art-science to bring a change in perception and heart. We need to hold this inspiration close and allow it to stimulate us to act so that art and science work together and provide a much-needed impetus to help heal our world.
