On Earth Day, NASA asked the world to submit selfies in response to the question, “Where are you on Earth Right Now?” The response was overwhelming, with over 50,000 photos submitted from 113 regions and countries!
Students and teachers around the world are invited to participate in a celebration of Earth Day with NASA's #GlobalSelfie event! On Earth Day (April 22), take a moment to go outside and capture a selfie of either yourself, your friends, or your entire class, and submit it using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie - these images will be used by NASA to create a mosaic image of Earth, starring you!
