NASA’s IceBridge Mission contributes to New Map of Antarctica A new dataset called Bedmap2 gives a clearer picture of Antarctica from the ice surface down to the bedrock below. Bedmap2 is a significant improvement on the previous collection of Antarctic data—known as Bedmap—that was produced more than 10 years ago. The product was a result of work led by the British Antarctic Survey, where researchers compiled decades worth of geophysical measurements, such as surface elevation measurements from NASA’s Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite, known as ICESat, and ice thickness data collected by Operation IceBridge. These images depict the differences between Antarctica’s ice sheet with its underlying topography. Click and drag the white bar to compare the images.

We all know owls are one of the wisest creatures and this one certainly will be one day too.

It don’t hurt to have her posted in your bedroom since owls hunt for little scary creatures by inborn instinct. She will watch over you. Happy dreams everyone

Reverse Waterfall Card In a conventional waterfall card you pull a tab to make a set of pictures flip open. I reversed the mechanism to make a push tab. As you push the tab the pictures flip, but the tab appears to stay the same size at every flip, instead of getting longer and longer at the bottom.
