Stunning full color HD video from the ISS shows life on Earth in motion

This video is taken from space. And yet we can see so much detail on Earth that it’s almost unbelievable. Cars are driving on roads and buildings are moving throughout the day and boats are crawling through rivers, remember this isn’t your run of the mill drone footage, this is all taken from an ultra-HD camera… » 6/18/15 4:57pm 6/18/15 4:57pm

All the planets in the Solar System fit between the Earth and the Moon

I never thought of this, but you can fit all the planets in the Solar System back to back into the distance from the Earth to the Moon—about 238,900 miles (384,400 kilometers)—with room to spare: 4,990 miles (8,030 kilometers.) Seeing it visualized really give you a good idea of how much empty space is out there. » 10/24/14 2:00am 10/24/14 2:00am

Scientists reveal new vision of Earth 4 billion years ago

The Hadean and Eoarchean epochs were the real hell on Earth. For millions of years, our planet was heavily bombarded by millions of asteroids with "existing oceans repeatedly boiled away into steam atmospheres"until its crust finally solidified. These two new visualizations will help you comprehend this violence. » 7/30/14 5:22pm 7/30/14 5:22pm
