121-megapixel Photo of the Earth Is Beautifully Detailed

There's no denying that the higher resolution a photograph, the more awe-inspiring it looks. There are some high-resolution cameras here on earth, but NASA uses some the highest resolution cameras humans have ever created for taking photos from space. The image you see here is the highest resolution image of the earth ever taken.

The image was shot using a 121-megapixel photo and the strange colors result from a combination of visible and infrared wavelengths of light. Infrared light is used to see plants, which is why parts of the planet that are normally green and lush look brown in this photograph. No matter the colors, that is a very beautiful image.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
