Dramatic images show changing Earth

Whether we like it or not, just about everything changes - from our bodies acquiring new wrinkles to fashion trends that differ by the week.

But what about the world itself? Just like us, Earth doesn't stay the same. Some of the changes have been beneficial, while others are quite troubling.

Now a partnership between Google, NASA and Time is revealing how our planet has radically changed over the decades.

The new TIME Timelapse website allows users to view how the Earth has altered through millions of time-lapsed satellite images.

With a few clicks, you can learn how climate change, urban expansion and population growth have modified the planet.

Click on the above video to learn about Timelapse and get a taste of what you will find on the website.

Astronaut sings Bowie's 'Space Oddity' in zero gravity

Chris Hadfield has conquered space. Now he's conquering the Internet, too.

A video of the Canadian astronaut singing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" from the International Space Station has been zipping around the Web at light speed since it was posted Sunday. The five-minute clip features Hadfield singing a modified version of the tune and strumming an acoustic guitar while floating through a space module, more than 200 miles above the Earth.

By Monday morning, it had more than 1 million views on YouTube, 3,000 comments on Reddit and was being widely shared across social networks.
