Human Collaboration Helps Reveal Earth In Its Full Beauty
The European Space Agency (ESA) has released its latest satellite image of the Earth’s surface. The picture shows ‘The Great Bahamas Bank’: a limestone structure composed of many, long decayed, micro-organisms. Created over a period of 100 million years the Great Bahamas Bank surrounds a deep ocean trench 4000 metres in depth (black region).
In an inspiring series of images, ESA highlights Earth’s profound beauty, and showcases the latest capabilities of satellite/imaging technology from around the world:
When exploring, one quite often takes a moment to appreciate Earth in its full glory. However, like a modern day artist, the latest satellite/imaging technology paints a picture that elevates awe to the next level. Further images can be found on ESA’s continually updated, Earth Observation, web page.
