    Today is the French national holiday of Bastille Day, which commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison and the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789. To celebrate, here’s an Overview of the Arc de Triomphe, located at the centre of 12 radiating avenues in Paris. In a typical year, today’s festivities would include a massive parade that begins at the Arc and proceeds down the grand avenue of the Champs-Élysées.

    The Great Barrier Reef is Earth’s largest structure composed of living things, made of more than 2,900 individual reefs stretching roughly 1,400 miles (2,253 kilometers) offshore of Australia. Perhaps there is no better “canary in the coal mine” for nature’s reaction to a warming planet than the recent coral bleaching events at the reef. Ninety-three percent of the increase in global temperatures has been absorbed by the oceans, raising water temperatures and causing ocean acidification. As a reaction to the warmer waters, coral expel the algae living inside their tissues, which give the coral necessary nutrients that provide up to 90 percent of their energy. Corals can continue to live after bleaching, but often they begin to starve soon thereafter. In 2016, a bleaching event killed approximately 30 percent of the Great Barrier Reef ’s coral, and overall, the average time between bleaching events has halved between 1980 and 2016.

Roughly seven years ago, I learned about an idea called the Overview Effect. It was simple - seeing the Earth from outer space had been proven to inspire feelings of awe and a desire to protect our one and only home. I deeply believed in the idea and thought the world might benefit from more of that perspective. I could never have imagined how many of you would join me in this journey.

One million followers certainly means something different to everyone. To me it signifies that this platform is now poised to bring significant attention to and shine a spotlight on the most pressing issues of our time. I can’t help but think that we currently find ourselves in a moment when we can make better use of this perspective to push towards a better future.

Upon seeing the Earth from orbit, astronauts often sum up their feelings with the phrase “we’re all in this together.” Whether or not our species will start acting like that’s true is yet to be determined. Be it the pandemic that we currently face, the ongoing threat of a changing climate, or future challenges that nobody can predict, we must recognize that these crises are very much a product of our creation and therefore require us to collaborate resolve them. Let’s see what’s possible when we work together.

This photograph of Earth was captured yesterday by NASA’s DSCVR satellite from nearly *one million* miles away. I’m excited to see what tomorrow will hold and where else this project can go. Thank you joining me so far, I hope it’s just the beginning.

Sincerely,
@benjaminrgrant

    We are excited to announce our new outdoor exhibition with @uponwalls is now on display in Karlskrona, Sweden. The city is spread over 30 islands in the Baltic Sea and is home to roughly 67,000 people. The island of Trossö - seen at bottom here and recognized as the city center - is characterized by uniform, baroque-style buildings from the turn of the 18th century. Check out our story today to see one the seven installations situated around the city!

    The Venetian Islands are a chain of six manmade islands in Miami Beach, Florida. Rivo Alto Island (left), Di Lido Island (center), and Marino Island (right) are pictured here. While the islands’ residential neighborhoods have some of the highest property values in the city, they are also among the first places ordered to evacuate in advance of a hurricane.

    Calgary and the surrounding prairies of Alberta meet the rugged Canadian Rockies in western Canada. This 910-mile (1,460-km) stretch of mountains is overall more jagged than the American Rockies, with sharply pointed peaks and wide, U-shaped glacial valleys. As the third largest municipality in Canada, Calgary serves as a popular base for tourists and adventure-seekers wishing to venture into the four Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks. The yellow in the fields surrounding the city are canola flowers which are harvested for the production of oil that’s used as a source of biodiesel and is also a key ingredient in many foods.
