Creating Earth

There's artistry to creating the world, according to Rob Simmon, art director of NASA Earth Observatory. NASA's collection of Earth-from-space imagery dates back to the Apollo 8 mission, when astronauts snapped a picture of Earth rising over the moon. Simmon and NASA scientist Gene Feldman explain how the modern "Blue Marble" images are made and how they relate to scientific study of the Earth.
