A survey of scientific ideas of the whole Earth from the decades either side of the first views of Earth from space in 1966-72, covering the International Geophysical Year 1957-8, the Earth sciences, ecology and ecosystems, and James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis. Argues that the rapid development and integration of models of the Earth from the physical and life sciences amounted to a scientific revolution, which was given visual form by the first images of the whole Earth.
