NASA is inviting Earth’s self-photographers to hashtag their portraits #GlobalSelfie on Twitter, Instagram or Google+, or post photos to the #GlobalSelfie group on Facebook and Flickr, according to the Christian Science Monitor. NASA plans to use the individual images to make a composite image of Earth.
NASA may make the saying “we belong to the earth” true in a kind of digital-literal way on Earth Day 2014. The space agency is inviting people around the world to send in selfies, and it will assemble the cellphone snapshots of human faces into a composite image of Earth.
It’s one small click for whole lot of men and women, one giant piece of computerized collage for NASA.
