Science Is Beautiful: The Dynamic Earth

This was the winner in the 2013 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge; a gorgeous video showcasing computer imagery built from real data showing the movements of various currents from the Sun, to the Earth, to the seas, put together by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center to show how dynamic our Earth really is.  It’s simply beautiful, and it’s lovely to be reminded of how simply beautiful data can be.
