Resource: NASA "Earth as Art" Book/eBook/iPad App

Postby laconte » Fri Dec 07, 2012 6:24 pm

A stunning array of images of our home planet, taken by Earth-observing science satellites, are featured in a new NASA publication. Images include snow-capped mountain peaks in the Himalayas, Arizona's Painted Desert, the Mississippi River Delta spreading into the Gulf of Mexico, a Saharan dune sea in Algeria, and Byrd Glacier in Antarctica.

The iPad version of "Earth as Art" allows users to zoom into the book's 75 satellite images and access additional information on selected features and the satellites used. The app can be downloaded by visiting: http://www.nasa.gov/apps

"Earth as Art" is available for purchase from the U.S. Government Printing Office online at: http://bookstore.gpo.gov
