Hurricane Claudette walloped Texas last month, killing two people and driving thousands from their homes. But from high in the air, it looked almost delicate as it swirled across the Gulf of Mexico. For more shots of historical and recent hurricanes, many taken by satellites and astronauts, check out this gallery from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. The more than 100 photos of storms and storm-chasing scientists date back to 1968 and include some of the most destructive hurricanes of the period, such as 1992's Andrew, which blasted South Florida.
