On Earth Day of this year, NASA posed a simple question to the Earth’s inhabitants: “Where in the world are you?” Citizens of the world who responded did so with a selfie. More than 36,000 selfies later, NASA has constructed a mosaic image representing the globe from all the entries, resulting in a “Global Selfie.”

The image is made up of 36,422 selfies, to be exact, that were shared on social media with the hashtag #globalselfie on (or around) April 22nd. (There were 50,000 submissions, but some were not usable.)  The photos come from every continent around the globe, a total of 113 countries and regions.

The Global Selfie is a zoomable 3.2-gigapixel image that visitors can click, drag, scan, and explore. The image of the world represents what the world actually looked like from outer space on April 22nd. 

Check out the YouTube playlist of slideshows made from some of the many worldwide submissions. Do you see yourself in any of them?
