Lena River Delta from Space


Earth from Space | Smithsonian Institution | Lena River Delta

Just a quick note - this is cool as hell. Clicking the above link allows you to zoom in with great detail to the image of the Lena River Delta (as well as other natural and man-made features).

The Lena River flows north for more than 2,800 miles (4,500 kilometers) through Russian Siberia to the Arctic Ocean. As the river enters the Laptev Sea, it divides into many channels to form a biologically rich delta. Such images help determine the extent of wetland vegetation.

The Soviet Union was a beautiful, and very safe, place to Visit. I have been 3 times and visited such areas as Lenningrad, Kiev, Moscow, Tashkent, Alma ata, dushanbe, Urgench, Khiva, Samarkand and Aktyubinsk etc. The people are remarkably resilient.

Looking at the Lena R. delta -- I like to zoom in on this picture, the detail is quite impressive, it's one of those places on Google Earth that I wish i could "copy" and make as my desktop/wallpaper (I could I suppose, with a little work). It's like an abstract painting.

Today is the launch of the world's first ever dual-language "Blog-Carnival Russian media". All English-speaking and German-speaking bloggers are invited to publish contributions on the Russian media on their weblogs between 1 and 30 June 2007 (see more www.krusenstern.ch/p716.html).

The launch date for the "Blog-Carnival Russian Media" has not been chosen by chance for today, 11 May 2007 , the "Novaya Gazeta", one of the last independent newspapers in the Russian Federation , is to be awarded the renowned "Henri Nannen Prize" 2007 in Hamburg for its services to press freedom.

The aim of the Blog-Carnival is to gather together as many different viewpoints and pieces of information as possible on the subject of the Russian media. Behind this initiative is the notion that the closer we get to the Russian parliamentary elections in October 2007 and the presidential elections in March 2008, the more the Putin government is clamping down on the media in Russia.

This Blog-Carnival is an opportunity for bloggers of both East and West to learn about the media that appear in the Russian Federation or report on it from abroad. The Blog Carnival will therefore bring the contributing bloggers new information, new contacts and a stronger network transcending national borders and language barriers (see more www.krusenstern.ch/p716.html)
Poka, poka!
