Let’s bring it home, kind of. Barrow, Alaska is one of the northernmost cities in the US, conveniently located right on the Arctic Ocean. Wow, this is beautiful, isn’t it? You could stare at this ice-shard-riddled seascape forever. And you can. There’s ice on the shore all year, and very few people. Enjoy the silence and the sounds of iceberg crackling.

NASA ECHO II S-131 // From Wikipedia: "Project Echo was the first passive communications satellite experiment. Each of the two American spacecraft, launched in 1960 and 1964, was a metalized balloon satellite acting as a passive reflector of microwave signals. Communication signals were bounced off of them from one point on Earth to another."
