Blue Marble

Scuba diving would beyond my capacity I consider but skin diving maybe a piece of cake. That’s kind of crazy,but hmm you know like crazy ideas sometimes work. Blue marble is the earth we live on and an abundant kind of species is crazy ditto.


Today’s article picked from Medium:

A New Blue Marble:

1.These images stitch together multiple high-resolution snapshots taken by satellites already in orbit to produce one seamless portrait of the Earth.

2.Composite imaging is an extremely useful tool for helping people understand the Earth — they allow researchers to capture certain features at higher resolution; reduce the obscuring effect of cloud coverage in certain areas; and overlay various data layers to help identify patterns and trends. Composites can result in some truly remarkable images, like this “Black Marble,” which, by stitching together multiple views of the planet, shows a full global view of the Earth’s city lights.

3.In addition to providing useful data to scientists and researchers, these images will remind all of us that we live on a planet, in a solar system, in a universe. And that we are not just Americans, but citizens of Earth.

4.Apollo 17 astronaut Eugene Cernan explained:

“…you’re looking at the most beautiful star in the heavens — the most beautiful because it’s the one we understand and we know, it’s home, it’s people, family, love, life — and besides that it is beautiful. You can see from pole to pole and across oceans and continents and you can watch it turn and there’s no strings holding it up, and it’s moving in a blackness that is almost beyond conception.
