This past Earth Day (April 22, 2014), NASA invited you – and everyone else on the planet – to take part in a worldwide celebration. They asked us to take pictures of ourselves wherever we were on Earth, then post to social media using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie. And here’s the result. It’s a 3.2 gigapixel global selfie composed of 36,422 individual images. NASA said:
People on every continent – 113 countries and regions in all – posted selfies. From Antarctica to Yemen, Greenland to Guatemala, Micronesia to the Maldives, Pakistan, Poland, Peru – and on. The image was assembled after weeks of curating more than 50,000 #globalselfie submissions – not all were accessible or usable – from Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Flickr.
Bottom line: Cool global selfie from NASA, taken for and around last Earth Day 2014. Do you see yourself?
