Mesmerising photographs from the sky to bring some perspective to your day

Mesmerising photographs from the sky to bring some perspective to your day | Communication design | Scoop.it

Benjamin and his team create and share one “Overview” – the site’s name for each image – every day, to highlight the impact we have had on the Earth. “We work with Digital Globe’s database of satellite imagery and then add an artistic orientation to bring out the mesmerising aesthetic that this perspective provides. Each Overview ultimately starts with a thought experiment. We consider the places where man has left his mark on the planet and then conduct the necessary research to identify locations (and the corresponding geo-coordinates) to convey that idea.”

Outer space fascinates learners...and this post from VOX provides 40 maps that are divided into sections:

* The Solar System

* Earth

* Space History

* The Moon

* Mars

* The Rest of the Solar System

* Beyond the Solar System

If you teach Earth Science many of these maps may be of interest. One map that many students may find of interest is takes a look at the universe based on the moon being 1 pixel. It is located at this link.

Here's Every Meteorite Fall on Earth in a Single Interactive Visualization

Here's Every Meteorite Fall on Earth in a Single Interactive Visualization | Communication design | Scoop.it

Ever wonder how many meteors have hit Earth? The Meteoritical Society is doing its best to keep track. And Javier de la Torre, co-founder of CartoDB, is helping us see the pure volume of hits (into the tens of thousands). His interactive visualization shows a heatmap of hits all over the world, letting you explore where and when meteorites fell, as well as their size and classification.

I wonder how much of this is biased by the lack of reporting (or over reporting) in some areas.

Example of data scientist faux pas:  Meteors choose to fall so unevenly...!

A View Of Antarctica From Outer Space

A View Of Antarctica From Outer Space | Communication design | Scoop.it

This image photographed almost ten years ago on September 21, 2005, shows a gorgeous, pristine view of Antarctica. It was taken with the AMSR-E instrument onboard NASA’s Aqua satellite. 
Upon zooming in, one can see magnificent details of the awe-inspiring sea ice, and how much space it occupies in relation to the rest of the planet. 
To view more pictures, visit NASA’s site here.
