NASA Releases Free Downloadable Art Book
By John Yong, 06 Dec 2012
NASA has released a free downloadable art book that features stunning satellite photos of our home planet.
Called ‘Earth as Art’, the images inside the book were taken from various satellites orbiting the planet.
Using special sensors, the satellites were able to capture “light outside of the visible range”—revealing more than what’s visible to the naked eye.
“This book celebrates Earth’s aesthetic beauty in the patterns, shapes, colors, and textures of the land, oceans, ice, and atmosphere,” said NASA in a statement.
“The images are intended for viewing enjoyment rather than scientific interpretation. The beauty of Earth is clear, and the artistry ranges from the surreal to the sublime.”
