“……an origami paper boat is folded on the river bank, then sailed away……”

Over two days in early November, German artist Frank Bölter staged two touching performances of World’s End . The performances, in which the public helped Frank fold and launch a paper boat, before he sailed away in it, grabbed the imagination of London and the rest of the world where it was picked up by the media from Canada to China.

The images in this compilation are from the Landsat 7 satellite and were created to introduce the general public to the Landsat Program.Various combinations of the eight Landsat 7 spectral bands were selected to create the vivid RGB composites that we have featured.

Delta Region, Netherlands – Along the southern coast of the Netherlands, sediment-laden rivers have created a massive delta of islands and waterways in the gaps between coastal dunes. After unusually severe spring tides devastated this region in 1953, the Dutch built an elaborate system of dikes, canals, dams, bridges, and locks to hold back the North sea.

Akpatok Island - Akpatok Island lies in Ungava Bay in northern Quebec, Canada. Accessible only by air, Akpatok Island rises out of the water as sheer cliffs that soar 500 to 800 feet (150 to 243 m) above the sea surface. The island is an important sanctuary for cliff-nesting seabirds. Numerous ice floes around the island attract walrus and whales, making Akpatok a traditional hunting ground for native Inuit people.
