What’s wrong with this map?

That is, what’s wrong with an “upside down” or reverse map of the world? After all, there is no up or down from outer space.

    Reblogged this on one swallow makes a summer and commented:
    The first time I saw this a few years ago it really shocked me- just shows how used to certain images we get!

    Our minds seeing this image of an “upside down” map may seem odd, but it is more of a realization of what our minds have been conditioned to think and see as a “right side up” map. “Upside down” or “right side up” hmmmm?

    We should have one thing in mind..We have nothing like an upside down map..there’s no up and down in the Galaxy so we shouldn’t say there’s an up side down map..all the maps are correct…it just depends on the Angle you are looking from..
