NASA’s Earth Observatory





 
An Astronaut’s View The International Space Station is more than just an orbiting home and laboratory for its crew members. Floating more than 200 miles above our planet, it also serves as the ultimate manned Earth observation outpost. Using professional digital cameras with an ample array of lenses, astronauts capture images of our planet’s dynamic atmosphere and landscape. So far, astronauts have taken more than 700,000 photographs. A crew member captured this image of auroras over the Indian Ocean in 2011.

Remarkable photos show Indonesian volcanoes spewing blue flames

These amazing images by Olivier Grunewald show the bright blue glow of several volcanoes located within the 20km wide Ijen Caldera in East Java, Indonesia

Kawah Ijen is one of several volcanoes located within the 20 km wide Ijen Caldera in East Java, Indonesia. The caldera of Kawah Ijen harbors a kilometer-wide, turquoise colored, acidic crater lake that leaks sulphurous gases constantly. At night the hot gases burn to emit an eerie blue glow that is unique to Kawah Ijen. The gases emerge from the cracks in the volcano at high pressure and temperature, up to 600°C, and when they come in contact with the air, they ignite, sending flames up to 16 feet high. Some of the gases condense into liquid sulfur, and continues to burn as it flows down the slopes giving the feeling of blue lava flowing.

Forlorn TV episode 10 is live (and with this episode it’s officially moving to Wednesday). What is there to think about in space but space? And girls walking by libraries. And all that quantum bullshit.

British-born engineer Roy Lunn (centre) and his team study a model of the prototype Ford Mustang 1, their two-seater sports car went on to inspire the iconic Ford Mustang production car, which was first made in 1964. The first Ford Mustang rolled off the production line in Detroit on 17 April 1964, 50 years ago today. It went on to inspire the lyrics of rock’n’roll songs and appear in Hollywood movies of the 1960s and beyond. (+)
