Caption: Karakoram mountains, 3D computer image, viewed at an altitude of 13 kilometres. This mountain range contains some of the tallest peaks in the world, including K2 (left of centre), Broad Peak (centre) and the Gasherbrum range (far right). In the foreground the Baltoro Glacier (from right) and the Godwin-Austen Glacier (from back) meet forming 'Concordia'. At 8611 metres tall, K2 is the second highest terrestrial mountain in the world. This image was created by Christoph Hormann using data obtained from satellites such as Landsat and SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission). The data was processed into computer models using three-dimensional rendering software and then coloured and distorted to mimic the natural curvature of the Earth.
