For the first time, NASA has released a “Global Selfie” created by combining over 36,000 pictures clicked by individual people from more than 113 countries and regions.
For Earth Day (April 22) this year, NASA invited people around the world to step outside to take a “selfie” and share it with the world on social media. NASA then released a new view of our home planet created entirely from those photos.
The “global selfie” mosaic was built using over 36,000 individual photographs drawn from the more than 50,000 images tagged #GlobalSelfie.
The resulting picture is a zoomable 3.2-gigapixel image that users can scan and explore to look at individual photos.
