Dasht-e Lut desert detail
Wind-carved ridges and furrows in southeast Iran’s Dasht-e Lut salt desert are pictured in this satellite image.
The desert is often called the ‘hottest place on Earth’ as satellites measured record surface temperatures there for several years. The highest land surface temperature ever recorded was in the Lut Desert in 2005 at 70.7ºC, as measured by NASA’s Aqua satellite.
The region is generally considered an abiotic zone – meaning that even bacteria cannot survive here, let alone plants and animals. Some reports claim that research groups brought sterilised milk to the desert and left it uncovered in the shade, but the milk remained sterile.
The area pictured is surrounded by salt flats, visible on the left side of the image. The ridges dominating the image extend about 125 km.
This image was acquired by Korea’s Kompsat-2 satellite on 4 November 2011.
ESA supports Kompsat as a Third Party Mission, meaning it uses its ground infrastructure and expertise to acquire, process and distribute data to users.

Launching February 2nd 2013
Sketchbook and notes from a Dark Sky Public Art project creating shelter, sonics and a way for star gazers in Galloway Forest, Scotland. The forest is unique in having zero light pollution, there is only one other dark sky park in Europe. Therefore the views of the night sky are remarkable.

There were five traditional stone bothy shelters in the park, our work is at White Laggan bothy in the interior of the forest by Loch Dee.

We made thermal Spacesuits to combat elements and Sky gazers which are angled for observing. We have also made a vinyl LP of space ballads. The space suits are free for public use.
