Freefall

Amazing screensaver for the Mac called Freefall — tracks data, motion, and areas of coverage of 850 sattellites in real-time over spinning, zooming, panning 3-D renderings of the earth and continents. The quick video preview on the web site doesn’t come anywhere close to doing it justice — the experience is immersive and somewhat psychedelic. Wild to be able to visualize just how many satellites are orbiting at all times, and how scarily close their path vectors come. Satellite data updated over the internet as needed.

The satellites are spinning,
a better day is breaking.
The galaxies are waiting
For planet Earth’s awakening.
