NASA Wants to Know Where Exactly You Stand on 'Selfie Day'

April 21, 2014 at 7:08 PM | by | Comments (0)

The "Selfie" has been quite the topic of both derision and obsession so far this year, but tomorrow should be the true test of its popularity. April 22 is typically Earth Day, and that it'll be again this year; NASA has their own plans, however, and they need you.

Take a photo of yourself showcasing the nature of wherever you are, and upload it to social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+, Flickr) with the hashtag #GlobalSelfie to join in—you guessed it—Global Selfie Day.

On Earth Day, NASA will monitor photos posted to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Flickr. Photos posted to Twitter, Instagram or Google+ using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie, or to the #GlobalSelfie Facebook event page and the #GlobalSelfie Flickr group will be used to create a crowd-sourced mosaic image of Earth – a new “Blue Marble” built bit-by-bit with #GlobalSelfie photos.

To properly participate, NASA recommends printing one of their downloadable signs and writing in your location, to make it very clear where exactly you're spending Earth/Global Selfie Day.

Both the full image and a video will be released in May, and perhaps an announcement on whether or not NASA will try to make Global Selfie Day a thing to continue next year as well.
