Global Selfie Day

I’m probably out of favour with many, but I’m not a huge fan of posting selfies of yourself on-line. I really don’t see the point. But in a few days NASA is asking us all to take ‘seflies’ for World Earth day.

So why is a space agency asking us all to talk selfies? Well NASA wants us to post the pics on-line, along with our location on April 22nd, so it can build up a picture of humans on Earth. Just in the same way that space craft take pictures of the Earth from space and look at our planet, the space agency wants to match this with images on that day of humans on the planet.

The photos will then be used to create a mosaic of the blue marble, our home planet, to match the incredible and awe inspirining photos we already have.
