Get Space-Crafty with Earth Science!
It’s time to get space-crafty! (Get it?) We’re getting ready to launch Landsat 9 into space this fall, and we want to know, how does Landsat inspire you?
For nearly 50 years, Landsat satellites have been collecting important data and taking beautiful images of Earth, as a partnership between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey. Scientists and policy makers alike use this data to understand climate change, deforestation, the growth of cities, and so much more.
Tumblr media
In celebration of the Landsat 9 launch in September, we are calling all crafters to create space-crafts inspired by your favorite Landsat image! From watercolor paintings to needlework to frosted cakes, let your creativity flow and show us how you see Landsat images.
Post a picture of your craft on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #LandsatCraft. We will spotlight some on social media!
For a little inspiration, here are some #LandsatCraft examples from some of the people who work with Landsat:
Tumblr media
“Looking through the Visible Earth Landsat gallery for inspiration, I saw the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) and knew immediately what I had to do -- recreate it in a mosaic of my own. LIMA is a composite of more than 1,000 cloud-free Landsat 7 images of Antarctica, and when it was released in 2007 it was our first high resolution, true-color look at the icy continent.” – Kate Ramsayer, NASA Landsat Communications Coordinator
Tumblr media
“I love embroidering satellite imagery and NASA data. For Landsat, I wanted something with lots of straight lines -- much easier to stitch! -- and crop fields like these fit the bill. It’s amazing how clearly we can see the influence of human activities in satellite imagery like this. It’s a constant reminder of the effect we have on our home planet.” – Katy Mersmann, Earth Science Social Media Lead
Tumblr media
“We didn’t have the discipline or the organizational skills to do any of the really, really fancy images, like Lena Delta, so we chose Garden City, Kansas in 1972. We added a model of Landsat 1, too.” – Ryan Fitzgibbons, Earth Science Producer, and Charles Fitzgibbons, Age 8
Tumblr media
"I was inspired by this Landsat image which demonstrates how we can use satellite imagery to remotely monitor cover crop performance, a sustainable farming practice that promotes soil health. Since I began working with NASA Harvest, NASA's Food Security and Agriculture Program, I've come to understand the critical importance of conservation agriculture and resilient farmlands in support of a food secure future for all, especially in the face of a changing climate." – Mary Mitkish, NASA Harvest Communications Lead
Tumblr media
“I chose particular ingredients that represent the Landsat qualities that we celebrate:
The base spirit is gin because Landsat data is clean and precise. Vermouth represents our foreign collaborators. Using both lemon and lime juices signifies the diverse uses of the data. The ginger is for the land we study. The apple, well, because it’s American. The club soda makes it a long drink, for the long data record.” – Matthew Radcliff, NASA Landsat Producer
Tumblr media
“Last year for the 50th Earth Day, I created this poster, inspired by our views of river deltas -- many captured by Landsat satellites -- which are particularly beautiful and evocative of water coursing through our land like a circulation system of nature. In 2000, Landsat 7 took one of my favorite images of the Lena Delta, which is the basis for this art.” – Jenny Mottar, Art Director for NASA Science
Are you feeling inspired to create yet? We’re so excited to see your #LandsatCraft projects! Follow NASA Earth on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see if your art is shared!

Hello, all ye creative folk o’ Tumblr! I’ve got a challenge for you: reblog this with one piece of art and/or writing you’ve completed this month. It could be a poem, painting, crochet plushie, photograph, recipe, whatever. I want to see and share what you’re proud of!
Haven’t made anything this month? Reblog this to put the spotlight on someone else instead! Be sure to include links to them instead of reposting their work, but I’d love to connect with more people here.
Let’s support one another and emphasize the importance of community!

Artists always draw Technoblade as this hulking monster, or at least a normal dude. But in actuality Technoblade is the only member of DSMP that doesn't use shields (both out of habit and out of flex), and this leads to him being by far the most mobile and actively moving player when it comes to fighting, as he has to rely on positioning and dodging to avoid damage, instead of tanking it. Look at any of his fights, he is constantly strafing and moving around, while his opponent just stand there, shields up.
So, what I am trying to say is that maybe Techno isn't a massive, broad-shouldered behemoth, but instead is a master Yoda shaped mf-er, constantly zipping around the place.

I would like to thank @intermundia for introducing me to the exquisite combination that is classics and obikin. So when I saw that sculpture, I couldn’t resist a little artistic adaptation.
