Life on Earth is indeed a mystery, and this movie pulls back the curtains on how some of these mysteries function in order to keep life going on this planet. 

Although this presentation of the amazing uses of technology goes into natural systems, it only touches briefly on the negative impact that humankind is having. It briefly covers humans impact in the last five minutes or so, and gives no specifics on the damage being caused at all.

It does say that these satellites will be at the end of their life and they all need replacing and NASA needs funds to do this… NASA just had their whole space program outsourced to Russia by President Bush, so we would imagine that these satellites and all of the jobs associated with them will be outsourced to China, Russia, Vietnam, Bangladesh or India.

Jobs in the USA are being delivered on a silver platter to countries with ‘cheaper’ labor, while foreigner worker visa programs are being expanded, to bring cheaper labor into the US, with the bottom line effect of replacing hundreds of thousands of US workers. The excuse is that workers cannot be found to take high tech, high paying jobs here in the USA. Do you think this is the real issue? 

Overall however, this movie is well worth watching. After all, how often do we get to travel to outer space and view the Earth from a large variety of satellites?
