NASA's Cool View: Perpetual Ocean

Below is a single frame from one of the most impressive renderings of our planet I have ever seen. NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio has produced a piece that depicts 3 years of ocean currents around the globe. The video compresses this data to about 3 minutes. Even the smaller video takes awhile to download, but I strongly suggest taking the time. No narration. Just a little mood music and the oceans in motion. It's awesome!
