Holy hell … that’s gorgeous (and false-colored, sadly).
Right off the George Parks Highway in Cantwell, Alaska this giant once upon a time Igloo stands in waiting. It is 4 stories tall and was built, I believe, in the 1970’s. It was meant to be a hotel, though it is 20 miles from the nearest city. Construction was completed on the outside but the inside was never finished. Now it is lovely attraction to passing motorist who stop and take pictures of it and with it often.
It can be seen from Google Earth or Maps check it out! 63°11’15.74”N 149°21’35.74”W
This webpage is about one mile long (depending on your browser resolution). It has one figure for every person on Earth, color-coded by region.
It is a stunning way to put into scale the 7+ billion people on Earth. I’ve zoomed in and out and my mind is just sort of blown. I don’t know who you are, person #5,779,280,035, but you look great.
