Die Erde bei Nacht aus Sicht der ISS

Kurzer Break am Dienstagvormittag – die Woche ist dafür ja schon alt genug.

‚Night Flight‘ has been created using real photos of Earth taken by NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Sit back, relax and meditate on our beautiful home as the lights from across the world shine out into space.

Using software, we have turned this time-lapse photography into a real-time video reconstruction so we see our planet at the speed as it would have appeared from the ISS.

Tauchen durch Plastikmüll

Taucher und YouTuber cheeseandjamsandwich war neulich vor Bali unterwegs und wollte eigentlich mit Rochen tauchen. Rochen sieht man in dem dabei entstanden Video keine. Ein paar Quallen aber – und Müll mit Müll und noch mehr Müll.

The ocean currents brought us in a lovely gift of a slick of jellyfish, plankton, leaves, brunches, fronds, sticks, etc…. Oh, and some plastic. Some plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic cups, plastic sheets, plastic buckets, plastic sachets, plastic straws, plastic baskets, plastic bags, more plastic bags, plastic, plastic, so much plastic!
Surprise, surprise, there weren’t many Mantas there at the cleaning station today… They mostly decided not to bother.

A day in the life of earth

Japan’s Himawari-8 satellite is in stationary orbit over New Guinea where it captures some truly amazing imagery of the Earth. Every day the satellite captures imagery of the western Pacific, Australia, and parts of Asia, Antarctica & Alaska.

Glittering Blue is a video of Himawari 8’s imagery from just one day. The video shows 24 hours of imagery from August 3rd 2015 in 12 seconds. What makes Glittering Blue stand out is its sheer size, which really showcases the amazing quality of Himawari-8’s imagery.

Erde und Mars aus Sicht des Mondes

Konkreter Größenvergleich zwischen Mars und Erde, geknipst von der NASA vom Mond aus. Hier in ganz, ganz groß.

Normally, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has its cameras fixed on the surface of the Moon. But on May 24, 2014, flight engineers directed the spacecraft to turn back for a quick look at Earth and one of our closest planetary neighbors—Mars.

When the spacecraft’s LROC camera captured this image, Earth was about 376,687 kilometers (234,062 miles) away from LRO and Mars was 112.5 million kilometers away. In other words, Mars was about 300 times farther from the Moon than the Earth. (Note: Mars has been contrast-stretched in order to improve its visibility.)
