Nasa creates entire world made out of selfies
People on every continent took photos for the giant mosaic
Nasa has harnessed 36,422 images posted to social media to produce a 3.2 gigapixel 'global selfie mosaic'.
The space agency asked people around the world on Earth Day the simple question: 'Where are you on Earth right now?', taking responses in the form of selfies.
Citizens from 113 countries responded on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more, and after weeks spent sifting through the 50,000+ submission Nasa were able to make a composite image of the world out of them.
You can zoom in anywhere in the image, with the selfies being group to replicate views of each hemisphere as seen on 22 April, 2014.
While Nasa scientists have helped identify thousands of new planets in recent years, the space agency studies no planet more closely than our own.
For the first time in over a decade, five missions designed to gather important data about Earth are launching to space this year.
It currently has 17 satellites observing our planet, helping us to better understand our atmosphere, land and oceans.
