Planet Earth during hurricane Sandy, as depicted with a globe made from thousands of matchsticks.

That would be a literal description…

European Space Agency can serve your imagery fix whilst NASA is down. #planetearthispretty

Colossal (and Devid Sketchbook) provides this awesome option.

Luckily there’s still at least one space agency still publishing photos of space (and space from Earth), the European Space Agency. The ESA has an incredible Observing the Earth archive that’s updated every week and each satelitte image is usually accompanied by a brief essay to explain a bit about what you’re looking at.

Now for the whoa part:

What I learned today: apparently volcanoes can puff smoke rings

These were “puffed” by Mount Etna in 2000. Apparently, she recently did it again.

This has to be the coolest memo pad I’ve ever seen: Topographically accurate too.

“A memo pad that looks as if it has been cut directly out of the earth’s crust. The earth’s surface seems to be whittled away as the pages of the pad are used, and the pattern of the geographical features and the coastal lines changes. A memo pad that lets you enjoy the same kind of sensation you get from diving down into the ocean.”

Giant Sculpture Awaits Climate Change and Subsequent Sea Level Rise

“One of the known environmental changes that is happening is the rising of the sea level through global warming. It is critical to me that at the time of its making this work reacts with the viewer, the walking viewer, on the top of the polder and that the surface that the viewer stands on is the surface that the work stands on. The work cannot have a plinth. Over time, should the rising of the sea level mean that there has to be a rising of the dike, this means that there should be a progressive burying of the work.”
