My first Three.js app

Major re-design for MY NASA DATA

The MND website has gone responsive! Gone are the klunky fixed width themes, now MND looks great on mobile. It's interesting how just by making an extremely responsive theme, the website looks great on really any platform. That's really the whole idea.

So we had some issues with our data viz tool, we didn't get hacked but the software we use did get hacked in another organization. For security purposes, we pulled the app and worked on it ourselves. After about 3 months of coding, and re-coding, and working with the security folks, the original developers and others, we got a clean scan and the app was back online. During that time, I also thought that the site needed a face lift, and the first theme was really a collaborative effort--I wasn't the one who picked all the colors etc.

Anyway, the new design features captured video from the International Space Station, through their incredible HDEV (High Definition Earth Viewing) experiment. It's comprised of 4 HD cameras that are mounted on the ISS. You can see live video there through their Livestream.

begin it now.

"Until one is committed,there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. Whatever you can do or dream you can. Begin it now." - Goethe
