Caption: Himalaya, 3D computer artwork, viewed at an altitude of 39 kilometres. In the foreground is Kanchenjunga, which, at 8586 metres high, is the third tallest in the world. In the background is Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain at 8844 metres high. To the left the green regions of lower Nepal and northern India and to the right the high plains of Tibet. 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.
