East Indonesia Island Chain

As an equatorial country, Indonesia is often obscured by cloud cover. An astronaut aboard the International Space Station recently seized the opportunity of a relatively storm-free day to photograph nearly half the length of #Indonesia’s main island chain. Using a short lens and looking to the horizon for a panoramic effect, the astronaut captured this vast view that includes both clear skies and a murky, region-wide smoke pall. The smoke comes from fires caused by lightning strikes and by forest clearing by humans in Indonesia and northern Australia.

In this photograph looking from west to east, #Java is in the foreground, #Bali and #Lombok are near the center, and smaller islands trail off toward the horizon. More distant islands such as Sumba and Timor are almost invisible; each is more than 1600 kilometers (1,000 miles) distant from the spacecraft. The brightest reflection of the Sun off the sea surface occurs silhouettes Surabaya (population 2.8 million), Indonesia’s second-largest city.

Against this background of regional smoke, a line of volcanoes appears in sharp detail. Volcanoes are the backbone of the islands, which have been formed by the collision of the Australian tectonic plate (right) with the Asian plate (left). Note that the name of each volcano is labeled in italics.

White plumes show that at least six volcanoes were emitting steam and smoke during this ISS orbit. Even though the plumes are short (80 kilometers; 50 miles), they are prominent because the volcanoes stand above the smoky air layer near the surface. The plumes are also strikingly parallel, aligned with winds from the northeast. Every day, astronauts are sent memos alerting them to dynamic events—such as volcanic eruptions and fires—so that they might observe them from space.

Nomophobia mulai menjangkiti kita. Kita dibuat sangat bergantung dengan teknologi smartphone yang lebih khusus di dalamnya terdalam aplikasi sosial media. Kadang saya berfikir, bagaimana kita bisa kembali lagi ke jaman dimana orang sangat menghargai komunikasi verbal paling mentok SMS dan itupun dilakukan dengan se’tulus’ hati.

Punkt MP01 salah satu ponsel yang dibuat untuk melawan hegemoni teknologi. Jangan dikira kita bisa update Path atau Kirim Broadcast di LINE atau Whatsapp. Tidak, ponsel ini dibuat bertujuan mengembalikan lingkungan dan manusia berada kembali ke jalur komunikasi dasar. Dengan lebih banyak berbicara dan mendengar.

Ponsel ini meraih beberapa penghargaan desain dan dijual layaknya karya seni. Ah, mau pindah pakai ponsel ini tapi apa bisa, berat ya. Apalagi sudah siap juga tidak lingkungan kita saat ini menerima keberadaan kita dengan teknologi esensial telpon dan SMS saja. Gak yakin…
