Mt. Everest Gigapan

In the event you haven’t seen it yet, this 3.8 billion pixel gigapan of Mt. Everest should kill at least a half hour in your day.  Considering that most of us will never see this view in person, this is not a bad alternative.  In fact, as creator David Breashears points out in this NPR interview about the project, the view offered by this project is actually better in some ways because of the resolution offered compared to the abilities of the naked eye and the fact that you can avoid that whole out-of-breath-at-18,000-feet thing.

    This is awesome. Incredible to zoom in on high camps and climbers and prayer flags spread across the mountain. Thanks narc
