Exploring Space
The BBC has created a monster infographic illustrating “every attempt to leave Earth’s orbit and reach a destination in extraterrestrial space – be it with probes, orbiters, rovers, or of course manned missions.”
The graphic shows successful and failed missions, country of launch origin and type of mission (eg., fly-by, rover, actual landing).

NASA and NOAA turn the Blue Marble green in breathtaking new satellite images
Scientists have released new satellite images that show how much of the Earth’s surface is covered in vegetation. Using the VIIRS sensor aboard the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite, experts collected data between April 2012 and April 2013 and used it to create a new vegetation index which shows how much of the sun’s energy is absorbed by plant life on Earth and how much is reflected back into space.
