The Pudding: Seeing Earth from Outer Space

Matthew Conlen created this multifaceted visual essay about satellites for The Pudding, an online magazine that features visual essays and data visualizations. In his essay, Conlen traces the history of satellites from early attempts to capture such images (including early attempts to strap cameras to pigeons) to the present day. Best of all, this essay allows readers to explore satellite images in a number of ways: hovering links in the texts; by exploring a collection of some of the most famous satellite images taken over the past five years (this collection appears toward the end of the essay); and through an interactive feature at the end of the essay that also provides a helpful explanation of how different satellites work.
