Very thin!!

Hi Gang,

It's amazing just how tenuous the atmosphere of this planet of ours really is. This image from astronaut Scott Kelly shows just how thin the atmospheric layer is. Take a look here and see if you realised this before the image!! http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/good-night-from-space and before people tell me off- I know that the planet isn't really "ours"..

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
