the blue marble (hi, hi)

“This spectacular ‘blue marble’ image is the most detailed true-color image of the entire Earth to date. Using a collection of satellite-based observations, scientists and visualizers stitched together months of observations of the land surface, oceans, sea ice, and clouds into a seamless, true-color mosaic of every square kilometer (.386 square mile) of our planet. These images are freely available to educators, scientists, museums, and the public.” EO News: NASA Olympics Blue Marble Release; February 6, 2002. I’m minorly obsessed with images of Earth. I guess it’s the notion that observing ourselves from without can provide some perspective on within. Should we talk about the weather?
