New- Google Timelapse Allows You to Visually Track The Earth's Changes over The Last 3 Decades. December 2, 2016 Google has recently released a new update to its popular Earth Timelapse allowing users to visually track geographical changes of the planet from the year 1984 to 2016.

New- Google Timelapse Allows You to Visually Track The Earth's Changes over The Last 3 Decades

Using video footage, users are able to see how the Earth has changed over the past three decades. Drawing on Earth Engine’s cloud-computing capabilities, this project makes use of over 5 million high definition satellite images acquired by five different satellites. Earth Timelapse allows you to search, pan and zoom around various regions of the world. You can track how major cities around the globe have evolved. Exploring the Planets Exhibition. Online Labs.

Five Visualizations to Grasp the Scale of the Universe

Since yesterday was 10.10.10, we’ve decided to celebrate this cosmic alignment of numerical symmetry by illuminating the measurements of magnitude. Today, we are taking five different looks at one of the most difficult concepts for the human brain to quantify and understand: The size and scale of the universe. What better way to celebrate 10.10.10 than with Charles and Ray Eames’ iconic Powers of Ten film, an adventure in magnitudes circa 1977? The film opens with a lakeside picnic in Chicago and branches outward into the universe, jumping to a vantage point ten times further out every ten seconds until our galaxy becomes a mere speck of light among many, then speed-zooms back to Earth, magnifying the view tenfold every ten seconds.

A mega-filament erupts on the Sun as seen on JHelioviwer ESA makes the Sun available to everyone 14 December 2010 New software developed by ESA makes available online to everyone, everywhere at anytime, the entire library of images from the SOHO solar and heliospheric observatory.

Just download the viewer and begin exploring the Sun. A solar prominence in JHelioviewer JHelioviewer is new visualisation software that enables everyone to explore the Sun. More than a million images from SOHO can already be accessed, and new images from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory are being added every day. A prominence arcs up from the solar surface. Using this new software, users can create their own movies of the Sun, colour the images as they wish, and image-process the movies in real time. “We wanted to make it easy to view solar images from different observatories and instruments, and to make it easy to make movies,” says Daniel Müller, ESA SOHO Deputy Project Scientist.
