About the book:
Genesis [is] the result of an epic eight-year expedition to rediscover the mountains, deserts and oceans, the animals and peoples that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society—the land and life of a still-pristine planet. “Some 46% of the planet is still as it was in the time of genesis,” Salgado reminds us. “We must preserve what exists.” The Genesis project, along with the Salgados’ Instituto Terra, are dedicated to showing the beauty of our planet, reversing the damage done to it, and preserving it for the future.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has capped 2013 with a spectacular new collection of Saturn photos showcasing the planet’s beauty, as well with its trademark rings and strange moons.
The newly released Saturn photos by Cassini include two views of Enceladus, Saturn’s sixth-largest moon. Enceladus is a winter-appropriate ice world. Geysers at its poles shoot ice particles into space, some of which make it into orbit around Saturn. Some of this space “snow” becomes part of Saturn’s E ring, Saturn’s second outermost ring that is made of microscopic particles.
Other images highlight Saturn’s largest moon, Titan. There are no jolly elves at Titan’s north pole; liquid methane and ethane seas appear as splotchy features near the moon’s poles. At the south pole, a high-altitude vortex swirls. The hazy orange atmosphere of Titan is thought to resemble the atmosphere of early Earth.
During a recent cold snap, Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly and her son used homemade soap bubble solution and her camera to create an awesome series of photos entitled Frozen in a Bubble.
In an interview with KOMO News, Kelly explains, “We blew the bubbles across the top of our frozen patio table and also upon the hood of my car and then we watched in awe as each individual bubble froze with their own unique patterns. We noted how they would freeze completely before the sun rose but that once the sun was in view they would defrost along the tops or cease freezing altogether. We also noted how they would begin to deflate and implode in on themselves making them look like alien shapes or in some cases shatter completely leaving them to look like a cracked egg.”
