Год жизни Земли уместили в две минуты.

В короткий ролик вместила НАСА целый год жизни Земли. Видео было смонтировано из снимков, сделанных научным инструментом EPIC спутника DSCOVR с расстояния полутора миллиона километров.

EPIC делает снимки каждые два часа, отображая постоянно меняющиеся движения облаков и погодных система, а также главные черты ландшафта планеты - пустыни, леса и моря.

Двухминутный ролик размещен на официальном канале агентства в YouTube.

DSCOVR предназначен для слежения за космической погодой (солнечным ветром и корональными выбросами) и расположен в точке Лагранжа L1 системы Земля — Солнце. Аппарат был запущен с мыса Канаверал в феврале 2015 года при помощи ракеты-носителя Falcon 9 компании SpaceX.

On July 20, 2015, NASA released to the world the first image of the sunlit side of Earth captured by the space agency's EPIC camera on NOAA's DSCOVR satellite. The camera has now recorded a full year of life on Earth from its orbit at Lagrange point 1, approximately 1 million miles from Earth, where it is balanced between the gravity of our home planet and the sun.

EPIC takes a new picture every two hours, revealing how the planet would look to human eyes, capturing the ever-changing motion of clouds and weather systems and the fixed features of Earth such as deserts, forests and the distinct blues of different seas. EPIC will allow scientists to monitor ozone and aerosol levels in Earth’s atmosphere, cloud height, vegetation properties and the ultraviolet reflectivity of Earth.

The primary objective of DSCOVR, a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force, is to maintain the nation’s real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities, which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of space weather alerts and forecasts from NOAA.
