"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853

This Envisat image is focused over the Patagonia Plateau in Argentina and
southern Chile, and shows the snow-capped Andes mountain range which forms a
natural boundary between the two countries.

Satellite images acquired by ESA’s ERS-2 revealed the recently discovered
changes in Yellowstone’s caldera are the result of molten rock movement 15
kilometres below Earth’s surface, according to a recent study published in
Nature.

Check out this artist's impression of the Earth Gravity field and Ocean Circulation
(GOCE) satellite to be launched by ESA in 2007:

It looks like the lead ship of the Zorgon invasion fleet!


From this article:

Six new Earth Explorer missions selected for further study

23 May 2006

ESA has announced the shortlist of new Earth Explorer mission proposals within its Living Planet Programme. This is part of the selection procedure that will eventually lead to the launch of the fourth Earth Explorer Core mission during the first half of the next decade.

The BBC reports that GOCE has slipped to 2009, due to issues with the launch vehicle.

Envisat has been abruptly silent for a few weeks now...

France's Pleiades imaging satellite took this optical photo of Envisat on April 15 at a range of about 100 kilometers, or approximately 62 miles. Credit: CNES
