Earlier today The Atlantic ran this photo which was recently shot from the International Space Station giving us all a glimpse of Everest as viewed from orbit. They also ran a story that claims that “Mount Everest Doesn’t Look All That Big When You See It From Space.” Looking at the photo however, I have to beg to differ. That magnificent mountain still stands out from the crowd in my eyes and its unique profile towers over everything else around it. It is a great shot of the Himalaya captured from high above, with the world’s highest peak right at the center.
