These extreme zoom-in movies were digitally created by NASA using photographic material from different satellites. From coast to coast, there is no escape from the eyes in space.
The video on the top shows an extreme zoom out from NYC's Central Park, in High Definition, just newly created by scientists at NASA Goddard (make sure to activate the HD and play it at full screen). The second one zooms into some of the main US cities, from New York to Los Angeles' Hollywood Sign. [Thanks NASA Goddard Pictures!]
The HD video of Manhattan uses the classic Don Davis' Main Title track for Matrix Reloaded.
The compilation uses the ominous Dream Is Collapsing, from the outstanding Inception sountrack, by Hans Zimmer
