Earth Looks Like A Living Creature In This Amazing NASA Video We’ve all seen images of extreme weather from space. But none of those could prepare us for this video released by NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio. Using real data, this simulation’s volume-rendered clouds depict seven days in 2005 when a category-4 typhoon developed off the coast of China. According to the website, the goal of videos like this is to present a clearer picture of our planet and our place within it. We’ve all heard of the concept of mother earth, or the “gaia hypothesis” and how the planet isn’t just made of dead matter, but is actually a conscious, living being. Here’s a little snippet from another article we published on our website:
