Son Doong – The worlds largest Cave is in Vietnam

I have been to Vietnam on a photography assignment in the past and I wish I had known about this cave back then. But then it wasn’t even discovered yet. Some cave explorers discovered the Son Doong cave only in 2009 and it is now deemed the largest cave in the world.
I am pretty certain that this will be a huge tourist attraction in the future. So the best time to go and see it is now.

Take a look at more pictures here.

And a National Geogrpahic doco:

Amazing sattelite images

Nasa has published a free ebook  that shows some absolutely fascinating images of our planet.
this would make a great coffee table book. But if nothing else I will put this on my ipad and put that on my coffee table 🙂

From the Foreword:

“In 1960, the United States put its first Earth-observing
environmental satellite into orbit around the planet. Over the
decades, these satellites have provided invaluable information,
and the vantage point of space has provided new perspectives
on Earth. This book celebrates Earth’s aesthetic beauty in the
patterns, shapes, colors, and textures of the land, oceans, ice,|
and atmosphere. Earth-observing environmental satellites can
measure outside the visible range of light, so these images
show more than what is visible to the naked eye. The beauty|
of Earth is clear, and the artistry ranges from the surreal to
the sublime. Truly, by escaping Earth’s gravity we discovered
its attraction.”
