I read Charles Darwin’s The Origin of the Species as a very young kid and like so many others, I fell completely enamoured by the diversity of our planet. Here’s a couple of pictures of the Galapagos Islands from space, by André Kuipers. He writes: 

The Galapagos islands, one of the most famous, scientifically historic places on our planet.
