Seeing Earth from Outer Space
Humans have been trying to capture pictures of Earth since the invention of the camera in the 1800s. The earliest aerial photographs were taken from the tops of tall buildings, from kites and balloons, and even from cameras attached to pigeons in flight. In 1946, just after World War II, American scientists strapped a camera to a captured German V2 rocket and launched it into space.

We are bombarded with news and comment 24 hours a day. It is getting harder and harder to separate accurate stories from fake news – and it’s exhausting.
Mosaic takes the time to dive into a subject. We work with writers all over the world to tell stories that you won’t find anywhere else.
How long are our stories? As long as they need to be. As long as it takes to give you what you need to know about contemporary biology, health and medicine.
We thoroughly fact check and edit every story we run, so you can be sure that what you’re reading, watching or listening to is not only compelling but also accurate and considered – the opposite of fake news.
Mosaic tells stories about the science you care about in a changing world.
