Beautiful Replacement Google Earth Image of the Earth Created by NASA

Google Earth Blog have a really nice replacement for the view of the Earth from space for Google Earth based on NASA’s Blue Marble Next Generation data, which is much nicer than the ugly images Google provides.

The add-on fades out as you zoom in to leave you with the standard Google Earth satellite images. A nice piece of work.

The Blue Marble images themselves are fantastic, providing a high resolution (500 meters/pixel) set of images of Earth for an entire year.
