A month ago yesterday, NASA invited everyone on Earth to step outside, snap a “selfie” and share it via social media using #GlobalSelfie as the hashtag. The goal was to create a giant mosaic of the historical “Blue Marble” photograph, using said selfies — and yesterday, NASA released the final product.
With more than 36,000 individual photographs taken from the 50,000 images tagged with #GlobalSelfie, the result is nothing short of astounding. People from over 113 countries participated in the initiative, leading to a massive 3.2-gigapixel image that you can zoom through to scan through individual photos. If you participated in the #GlobalSelfie day, you might even find yourself if you dig hard enough.
To that end, we’ve embedded the GigaPan viewer above so you can browse the massive 3.2-gigapixel version to your heart’s content. If you’d like to download a larger version of the header mosaic, you can do so here.
Alright…?! NOW do you understand why all the selfies in the recents weeks?! GET YOUR #INFO BEFORE #HATE on #globalseflie and so the movement influenced other of course! And it got out of hand or way too in the hand actually! LOL …big deal. Enough with the frustration and hating out there!
