National Geographic Daily Photo National Geographic Daily Photo Photograph by Anthony Davis, Your Shot A caiman rescued by the ARCAS organization in Guatemala gets the eye from a ring of turtles.

NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio The mission of the Scientific Visualization Studio is to facilitate scientific inquiry and outreach within NASA programs through visualization. To that end, the SVS works closely with scientists in the creation of visualization products, systems, and processes in order to promote a greater understanding of Earth and Space Science research activities at Goddard Space Flight Center and within the NASA research community. All the visualizations created by the SVS (currently totalling over 5,500) are accessible to you through this Web site. More recent animations are provided as MPEG-4s, MPEG-2s, and MPEG-1s. Some animations are available in high definition as well as NTSC format. Where possible, the original digital images used to make these animations have been made accessible.
