Ocean surface currents from the MIT/NASA-JPL ECCO2 collaboration and visualized by the NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio. The animation nicely highlights the energetic turbulent ocean surface currents that are present in the real ocean but are not directly visible to the eye. Numerous people have also remarked that the visualization evokes the Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh. There are several similar animations by NASA's van Gogh team (Greg Shirah and Horace Mitchell) at http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/... - neither Greg nor Horace have severed their ears yet though.
