Earth from Space


Conference: 
MW2008
Institution: 
Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service
Designer: 
Interactive Knowledge
Why: 

This website takes a dense, hard-science topic (satellite imagery) and brings it down to a level everyone can understand and enjoy. Satellite zooms allow you to really get into these images. Supplemental information about the satellites themselves, etc. is fascinating.
