How Earth Looks When 18 Satellite Datasets Are Combined

Jaime TrosperOctober 5th 2014

Over the years, we’ve sent dozens of telescopes, satellites and probes into space. The vast majority of which, capture different aspects of mother Earth—parts that can neither be seen from the surface or with our own two eyes. Last month, for the “Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of Our Planet” conference, NASA’s visualization studio compiled a short clip with essentially all of the datasets (a whopping 18 of them) taken by any NASA satellite throughout the last ten years, ranging from our carbon, water, and energy cycles to the quality of our air.

This “through the lens” look at our planet helps us understand the huge number of things that come together to make life possible AND sustainable.
