Ask an Astrophysicist

The Question

(Submitted October 08, 1997)

Is there a source that one can peruse and purchase high altitude pictures of a particular area on earth? (For example, one's home town.) I'm sure NASA has a source but I can't seem to find it.

The Answer

This outside of our field of high-energy astrophysics, but you might try the following link:
