G'day ATS, in this digital age, where images of space, supernovae, galaxies, the infinitely small, immensely large and everything in-between are as
common as salt, we sometimes overlook our own beautiful planet.
NASA have released what they claim to be:
the most true-colour images of the entire world released to-date
I'll try and post them here, but if they turn out to be too large they can be found HERE
The images of the Indian Ocean and North America were produced by astronomers at Nasa's using images from the Terra satellite more than 435
miles (700km) above the Earth's surface
The Blue Marble series was pieced together from thousands of images taken over many months by the satellite's remote sensing device MODIS, of every
square kilometre of the Earth's surface.
I was going to post some information on Blue Marble but though that for a change, lets focus on the beauty of Earth, rather than the technology that
got us the pictures.
What do you reckon ATS??
