INTERNATIONAL -- Check out this global selfie of planet Earth. Last month, NASA invited people from around the world to take a selfie on Earth Day and share it on social media.

The agency used some 36,000 individual photos to build the selfie mosaic. It's a new view of planet Earth created entirely from selfies. NASA says it designed the project to encourage environmental awareness.
