Planet Earth Control Deck


It’s January already, which means it’s tax season! This year I decided to make an infographic celebrating NASA, one of my favorite tax-funded programs in America.

I wanted to show what Earth’s control panel might look like if it was a spaceship piloted by humans. It’s a bit too busy with all the flashing lights, but I was going for a mix between sci-fi and pinball so I’m still pretty happy with how it turned out. All of the data should be scientifically accurate, even if it’s moving too fast to read properly.

This might be the only infographic I post for a while - I’m working on a pretty extensive non-science art project right now, and it’s been taking up a lot of my time. I was also invited to be on the panel of judges for the Malofiej Infographics Summit in Spain, so I’m going to be out of town for few weeks. But I haven’t forgotten about this blog, and I’ll be back soon with more science!
