How NASA's Robert Simmon makes climate science beautiful

When NASA designer Robert Simmon bought one of the first iPhones in 2007, what he saw when he turned it on startled him. The image on the phone's startup screen was one he had designed. Known as the "Blue Marble," it displayed a beautiful picture of the Earth from space, composed of many satellite images. The "Blue Marble" is perhaps Simmon's most famous piece of work.

He wants the images he creates to help people better understand how the Earth works.
