Very detailed world street view coverage

Gigantic version (9439x5332) here.
The “world street view coverage” map has been posted a couple of times, and people are always frustrated at its inaccuracy, and I had a lot of work to procrastinate on, so I decided to make a more detailed version. Many screenshots of google maps later… enjoy! Some small areas (Singapore, Hong Kong, Busan, e.g.) might be hard to notice on the lower-resolution version.

European Space Agency posted this amazing–20+ minutes long but worth watching–video about how astronauts return home from the ISS in the Soyuz space capsule, with never before seen inside footage.

I cannot stop grinning about this adorable moment from the Wimbledon Semifinals. In the middle of one of the most intense and emotional tennis matches I’ve ever watched, Juan Martin Del Potro playfully unzipped Novak Djokovic’s shirt with a hilarious little smirk on his face.
Yes, this will go down as a classic match-up between two very powerful — and, at times, acrobatic — men playing at the height of their game. But I will remember it most for the humanity they showed one another. They marveled at each others’ incredible shots and threw their hands up at the futility of poorly called outs, and somehow, even though they were truly battling, they seemed to be in it together. 
Though I love watching Nadal and Federer play, seeing Del Potro and Djokovic do their thing made me realize how common it’s become in tennis to watch a robot play a machine and not quite know who to root for. From now on, I’m rooting for the humans.
