Artist sends aliens out-of-this-world photos

Photographs sent into orbit with hopes they will depict the impact humanity has etched on the planet.

    One hundred photos of life on Earth are currently orbiting our planet.

    An American artist chose the images hoping that they will become souvenir for aliens, billions of years from now.

    In the meantime, the collection is aimed at depicting the full impact that humanity has etched into the planet.
