Never mind photographs of your dinner, kitten, or the sunset you saw last night, NASA have taken things to a whole other level with their Instagram account, which was launched this week and already boasts a stonking 113,000 followers. And it’s all down to the fact that the people at NASA see more incredible sights on a day-to-day basis than us normal people are likely to see in a lifetime.
What’s that? Your granola looked really photogenic this morning? Here’s a picture of the Earth as seen from a satellite while you were eating it. You cat’s fallen asleep in the kitchen sink again? How about a shot of a Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer launching to head to the moon to rain on your parade. It’s okay, though, there’s no need to compete; NASA’s applaudable social media team are promising that their Instagram profile “will take its fans on an out-of-this-world journey through images of Earth and beyond” and they’re already delivering on all fronts. I’m in.
