Our Home

This is our world. This is our home. Earth. Click this link for the uber-high 21,600 x 10,800 resolution image of our home base (which is 19MB large, clicker beware). The photo was made possible through NASA’s impressive effort, NASA Visible Earth, famously known as the Blue Marble.

And if you are a statistics/spatial geek like me, it gets even better: NASA has kindly provided the full data set, measured to 1GB, up for absolutely free download!
