[chuck] in Science, space shuttle

Don't usually post a video this long, but the footage taken by astronauts from the NASA Space Shuttle is spectacular. I especially enjoy the scenes of Hurricane Florence over the Atlantic Ocean (3:35), the color separation in the Great Salt Lake (4:01), and the thunderstorms over the Amazon Basin (5:56), but the whole thing is achingly beautiful. Make a cup of tea and view it full screen. Wonderful glimpse of our planet.
