Art and Science
We are mutually oblivious...
Space Shuttle Discovery launches into orbit in the minutes before dawn, leaving a beautiful reflection through the light fog on the Intracoastal Waterway in Ponte Vedra, Florida, 115 Miles from the launch.

To mark Earth Day on April 22, 2000, NASA scientists released this new image of the Earth, updating the famous Blue Marble photograph taken by Apollo astronauts. The digital image uses data collected in 1997 from several satellites to approximate what a human could see from orbit, with the added artistic license of having the Moon in the background. The prominent storm raging off the west coast of North America is Hurricane Linda. The image of the Moon has been magnified to about twice its relative size.
