The site offers a zoomable and rotatable photo of the planet Earth taken by a Russian weather satellite called Electro-L.  The photo and video are made up of the highest resolution images ever taken of Earth.

The satellite is in orbit 36, 000 km above Earth’s equator.  It snaps a picture every 30 minutes at resolutions up to 121 megapixels.  60 miles of the Earth’s surface is packed into every pixel.

What is different about this interactive photo is that NASA usually makes an image from an amalgam of several photos.  These images taken by Electro-L show different things than NASA photos have  been able to show.  The images are a combination of visible and near-infrared wavelengths, depicting the Earth in a way not visible to the human eye.  For example, the orange in the picture shows vegetation.

How It Works

Step 1:

Send in your phone, free postage.  You can print out a label or request a free mailer bag

Step 2:

PlantMyPhone responsibly recycles your phone and sells the recycled materials to fund tree planting.  Trees per Phone!!

Step 3:

PlantMyPhone emails you about how many trees you planted!!

The following was copied from their website:

We all know that recycling is good for the planet, but why? Recycling your old cell phone enables you to make a difference in the well being of the planet because it limits resource consumption and keeps toxic chemicals out of our home environments.

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that each year 140 million cell phones are retired, and the rate of cell phone turnover is increasing. Additionally, it is suggested that there are currently 500 million retired cell phones that have already been discarded but not recycled. This stockpile of old cell phones could be put to good use if they are recycled. PlantMyPhone partners with recycling services that are ISO14001 certified and follow policies that ensure that materials are not exported to other countries or sent to landfills. This means that the materials in the phones are properly disposed of in the United States, in ways consistent with strict environmental guidelines. None of the materials are sent to landfills in the United States or abroad.

When a cell phone is recycled, the phone is taken apart and the pieces of the phone that are still useable are used to reconstruct phones to be sold in other markets. The remaining pieces, as well as cell phones that do not contain parts that can be reused are used instead for raw materials recovery. For every 1 million cell phones recycled, 75 pounds of gold, 772 pounds of silver, 33 pounds of palladium and 35,274 pounds of copper can be reclaimed. Both of these recycling processes are beneficial to the Earth because they reduce the mining of precious metals and cut down on the energy and resources used in production of new cell phone parts.

Why Trees?

“The symbolism – and the substantive significance – of planting a tree has universal power in every culture and every society on Earth, and it is a way for individual men, women and children to participate in creating solutions for the environmental crisis.”

The following is from Learn More on their site:

“We are a fulltime international team of physicists and mathematicians.  Our mission is to finalize an historic discovery of how gravity, electromagnetism, the nuclear forces, space, and consciousness are part of the same unified field…a realm of information, where consciousness literally interacts with geometry at the quantum scale to create everything that we define as reality.  Unfortunately, we are not staffed to handle incoming e-mails or contact from the public or the media at this point.

Mel Gibson in Mad Max 2

Our world is accelerating toward a big event…a major change.  Some feel this big event relates to 2012 cataclysms.  And some think it will be the collapse of world economies.  Also related to these scary beliefs, is the apocalyptic vision of a “Mad Max” world of ecological destruction, where mankind goes one step too far in plundering our planet’s natural resources.

And still others foresee a tipping point, where the changes brought about by the Internet will be eclipsed by the power and speed of the next wave of technology, perhaps involving genetics, nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence.

But many sense that this coming change will be a new age of harmony for our species, like the

Age of Aquarius

Age of Aquarius.  One thing is clear.  The majority of the 6.7 billion people on Earth today sense that something big is about to happen.”

“So what do you think will happen?  And does it really matter what you believe?

Christians say that mere belief or faith in something happening can make it occur.  And Buddhists believe that reality and our perception of reality are exactly the same thing.

Is reality more like a dream, where if you believe you can fly, you actually do?

A growing body of scientific studies from around the world confirms that these spiritual ideas may have a firm theoretical ground in physics.

For example, a “placebo controlled clinical study” means that the power of belief is removed from a pharmaceutical drug test.  The mind can actually dissolve a cancer tumor if the patient actually believes she swallowed a pill with a drug in it.  Even if there is nothing in the pill.  And according to the most well tested theory in physics, Quantum Mechanics, your consciousness changes reality.  In this theory, the phenomenon known as the collapse of the Quantum Wave Function is what brings reality into existence.  This is a fancy way of saying that one’s conscious observation of small unseen waves actually causes those waves to “collapse” into matter.  In other words, conscious observation materializes particles into existence.

So if we believe that we will experience 2012 cataclysms, could this tip the scale and cause such possibilities to occur?

And is it possible that we can heal our planet and prevent cataclysms?  Could we visualize world peace into existence through a massive pulse of belief transmitted by one million people around the world at the same time?

The best guess today from quantum physics is, “yes, probably”.

The 11-11-10 New Reality Transmission will be a pulse of belief sent into the Reality Matrix, which will swirl the flow of our group reality towards an experience that will be more interesting than cataclysms and wars.  It comes from the heart with no selfish intentions in mind.  And it is based on science, not fanciful delusion.  Picture this pulse of group belief as a spiral shaped beam, where each person who joins the pulse increases its intensity.

In the quantum realm, location does not work the way it does in our everyday perception.  Your location can be at work or at your home computer.  You will join the website at the designated times and simply project your belief for 11 minutes.

There will be 11 days in a row of group reality transmission, with the first one beginning at 11:11 pm EST on 11-11-10. Why all the 11’s?  The short answer is because it’s pretty and poetic and things of the heart give power to the pulse of belief that we will transmit into the future.  The longer answer is more theoretical and cannot be adequately explained here.  It related to the geometry of certain thought patterns within the Reality Matrix.

Use your intuition to make a decision on whether or not your consciousness exists outside of your body.  And decide; does it exist even when your body dies?

If your intuition leads you, then jump into the beliefs with all your heart.  Go for it.  Next visualize your conciousness as a swirling cloud around your body that creates the perception of your physical existence.  Imagine that this cloud is waiting for you to give it instructions.  Again, listen to your intuition.  And if it feels true, then choose to believe it firmly.  Now, in your mind’s eye, see your voretx cloud rapidly spiraling as it waits for you to steer it into action.

It’s your choice.  You can create your reality just like you subconciously create your dreams every night.  But if you are oblivious to this ability, then your life is like a flag being blown in the wind…and you’re like a passenger riding on a train going in circles.  So visualize that your mind’s attention is gently taking control of the spiraling cloud, which can change the Reality Matrix of your world.  See it.

Now point your spiraling consciousness vortex out and forward towards Earth’s future.  See a calm and harmonious world blossoming after a massive planet wide awakening takes place in the months ahead.

Viualize this awakening as being a shocker, similar to our whole species believing the Earth is flat on Friday and then on Monday realizing with delight that it is actually spherical.

Make pictures in your mnd of CNN announcing breaking news of the empirical proof that human consciousness exists outside of the body…the scientific validation of the existence of the soul and of the interconnection between all souls.

Imagine that under the crushing weight of this official new reality, there is a crumbling of the brittle old house of fear-based mental delusion in its three forms.  Fear of dying becomes a joke.  Fear of people taking your gold becomes silly.  And fear of people laughing at you becomes irrational.

Envision the true cooperative hearts of our planetary family coalescing like millions of rain drops on giant green leaves.

Now stop a minute and ask yourself a question.  Is this audacious reality possible?  If there’s nothing you can think of which makes it absolutely impossible, then by definition it’s possible.  And therefore large numbers of us can literally will it into reality with our minds.  So continue “programming” your consciousness vortex with this template energized by belief and activated by visualization.

See pictures in your mind of people around the world abruptly awakening from a trance and realizing that their group belief controls their group experience of reality in exaclty the same way we create the reality landscapes within our dreams.

See the whole planet being hit with the surprising understanding that reality is exactly like a group dream, where there are two ways to exist.  the first way is how we’ve dreamed for eons; the lie in which we’ve relinqueshed our reality control and been pushed around by our nightmares and limitations.  the new way will be to wake up and take control and fly together in a new fearless reality that we co-create like a beautiful group mosaic.

So envision our species enlightened by this major scientific discovery of the Reality Matrix which leads hundreds of millions of us to wake up and fearlessly change the story we are experiencing together.

Now, see your consciousness vortex interwining with one million others, who are all projecting this New reality Transmission into our future at the same time.

For 11 minutes for 11 days in a row at 11:11 pm EST, we will all lock our minds’ eyes into these visuals.  So, as you join us, amplify both your belief that it is actually working and increase the color and brightness of the picyures you are envisioning.  Belief and visualization are your two keys to creating within the Reality Matrix.”
