I doubt if I will ever tire of satellite pictures of Earth on the Big Picture. Your mileage may vary.

I only link to the Big Picture when I’m wowed at least three times while viewing the sequence. This passed.

There are too many cool photos in this Big Picture set not to share it. (Also, that sentence seems incorrect, but all the alternatives felt worse.)

Today’s Big Picture series is something that’s been banned for 18 years. And while it’s certainly somber, I’m not sure I understand what all the hubbub was about.

You’ve probably seen this set from The Big Picture by now, but that’s never stopped me before.

Just when I was beginning to wonder why I was still subscribed to The Big Picture, they drop a stunning compilation of satellite photos.

My two favorite errata to have resulted from last Tuesday:

#  The Sun →

Is awsome. (Yes, this is another Big Picture post.)

Closer to home, today’s Daily Dose of Imagery is pretty awesome too.

We live in a beautiful world.

#  Childhood Cancer on The Big Picture →

This made me cry.

#  Hurricane Ike →

Both awe and sadness seem like proper responses to this post from The Big Picture. These two really got me.

#  Paralympics on The Big Picture →

There are a couple pictures of the aforementioned 5-a-side, as well as a number of other sports new to me. Which leads me to the exactly-what-I-was-thinking first two comments on the post:

Awesome - is this being broadcast by anyone?

Sadly, no. And:

I think this is more human and fun, than the other one…

Photographed from above. On The Big Picture.

If those lines aren’t enough to make you view this one, nothing else I say will.

#  Of Rio

Another coincidence worth noting:

  • The Big Picture has a great set of photos of life in Rio de Jinaro.
  • While at Passport, Patrick Fitzgerald argues that the IOC should make Rio the host of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Though his argument is at times tepid, I find myself in agreement.

#  The LHC →

If this — the Large Hadron Collider that some on the fringe fear will create a black hole to swallow everything — is how the world ends, at least we’ll know we saw the truly amazing pictures.

#  The Big Picture of Jupiter →

July 25th, 2008 at 17:09 // In Worth Seeing 

I’m pretty sure this is at least the third time this week, but I can’t help myself. The Big Picture’s series on Jupiter is quite awesome.

#  Olympic Preperations →

If only to demonstrate how much a fan I am of The Big Picture, another link to another stunning series.

Though the theme and title of this Big Picture post is rather inelegant, the pictures are quite amazing.
