NASA will be celebrating Earth day on 22nd April showing the affection towards Earth. To make this day memorable, NASA has divided the Earth into 64,000 individual spots that are seen from space. These pieces are about 55 miles wide randomly assigned and NASA has offered them free online demonstration to create awareness among the community on this day. According to the NASA’s Adopt the Planet page, the entire data is collected considering the temperature, relative humidity of the Earth from the space agency. These pieces include Taj Mahal and one of the squares in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

After the entire adoptions get filled, the pieces would be reallocated again so that each and every individual to get an opportunity to celebrate their own piece of Earth.
