I really like pictures of Earth from space, but this is one only a mother could love. It's not actually a picture, but a map of Earth's gravity! It's a model created using data from the European Space Agency's orbiting GOCE satellite, which was used to very carefully map out the changing strength of Earth's gravity over our planet's surface. Essentially, this map tells you the direction of "down" over every point on the Earth. If you stand near a mountain, for example, then the gravity of that mountain pulls on you a little bit, and the direction you feel gravity pulling you changes a wee bit.
This kind of map - called a geoid - is a standard reference used by topographic maps, and also helps scientists understand how ocean currents flow, how ocean water circulates, and even better understand the dynamics of sea wave heights. It may make the Earth look lumpy and distorted and weird, but hey - nature calls 'em like it sees 'em.
