Nasa Writer Completes Two Year Quest To Capture The Alphabet From Space

A science writer has completed one of the largest scale alphabet games ever seen - after finishing a two-year hunt to capture the alphabet in satellite images of the natural world.

Adam Voiland, a science writer for the Nasa Earth Observatory, completed the mammoth hunt after enlisting the help of the internet.

Explaining the hunt, Adam wrote: ‘A few years ago, while working on a story about wildfires, a V appeared to me in a satellite image of a smoke plume over Canada.
‘That image made me wonder: could I track down all 26 letters of the English alphabet using only NASA satellite imagery and astronaut photography?
Two years later, and Adam has now completed the epic mission - with natural landscapes representing every letter.

Here they are in their entirety - and here’s a little bit of information about where each letter was captured.
