Cosmic microwave background, WMAP image

Cosmic microwave background. WMAP (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) spacecraft whole sky image of cosmic microwave background. This map indicates that the age of the universe is around 13.7 billion years and that the universe is expanding at a rate of about 71 kilometres per second per megaparsec (1 Mpc = 3262 light years). The colours represent the varying densities of the early universe as it was about 380, 000 years after its formation. The denser regions (red, yellow) formed the seeds of galaxies and other structures. The WMAP sky survey commenced on 11th February 2003. This 5-year WMAP image was produced on 28th February 2008

Global water and air volume

Global water and air volume. Conceptual computer artwork of the total volume of water on Earth (left) and of air in the Earth's atmosphere (right) shown as spheres (blue and pink). The spheres show how finite water and air supplies are. The water sphere measures 1390 kilometres across and has a volume of 1.4 billion cubic kilometres. This includes all the water in the oceans, seas, ice caps, lakes and rivers as well as ground water, and that in the atmosphere. The air sphere measures 1999 kilometres across and weighs 5140 trillion tonnes. As the atmosphere extends from Earth it becomes less dense. Half of the air lies within the first 5 kilometres of the atmosphere
