NASA's elegant self portrait of Earth made from 36,422 selfies

NASA made this zoomable self portrait of Earth using 36,422 individual photos that people posted to social media on Earth day.

Zoom in to see the magic. 

The space agency asked people all around the world a simple question – “Where are you on Earth Right Now?”

It took engineers a few weeks to assemble this massive mosaic from all of those selfies.

Do you recognize anyone?
