Mercury's surface in "enhanced color," a color scheme created to emphasize color differences. This is not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but by applying mathematical analysis to images, color differences can be accentuated beyond those visible to a person.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial under construction.
The workers had to endure conditions that varied from blazing hot to bitterly cold and windy. Each day they climbed 700 stairs to the top of the mountain to punch-in on the time clock. Then 3/8 inch thick steel cables lowered them over the front of the 500-foot face of the mountain in a "bosun chair." Despite the dangers, no one was killed during the project.
Otters in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
The sea otter population of Glacier Bay has increased dramatically in the past 20 years. Ecologists consider sea otters a keystone species here. Otters consume vast quantities of clams, urchins, crabs, and other invertebrates and their presence creates ripples through the ecosystem. NPS photo.

With more than 80% of Americans living in urban areas, urban parks are more important than ever. The father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted, said of urban parks:
It is one great purpose of the Park to supply to the hundreds of thousands of tired workers, who have no opportunity to spend their summers in the country, a specimen of God's handiwork that shall be to them, inexpensively, what a month or two in the White Mountains or the Adirondacks is, at great cost, to those in easier circumstances.
DOI and its bureaus and offices will not use robots.txt files (or any technology) to deny search engines the ability to index the contents of websites. This would be especially offensive if used to exclude content required by law or regulation to be posted.
On the off-chance that the above directive from OCO is unpersuasive, check (more recent) OMB Memorandum M-17-6, Section B. 3., "Agencies must ensure that all content intended for public use on their website can be indexed and searched by commonly used commercial search engines."
No new websites may be established without prior approval of your bureau or agency public affairs and CIO offices.
The "No new websites" rule applies to all sites, including (but not limited to) .org and .net sites, not just .gov sites.
The "No new websites" rule applies to all sites, including (but not limited to) joint and partnership sites, not just agency/bureau/office sites.
Just to be super-clear: The "No new websites" rule applies to all sites.
We appreciate that this rule exists elsewhere in different form, but it seemed handy to have a copy here for easy reference.
Don't make your dot-gov site look like DOI.gov. Only DOI.gov should look like DOI.gov.
Anything else would be confusing.
When we change our styles, your styles probably won't, and then your site will look silly -- or at least out-of-date.
If you have content that's meant for DOI.gov and it needs to be generated off DOI.gov, don't fake-up a DOI.gov look for your new site; just craft your material so it can be embedded or otherwise displayed or interacted with (an API, perhaps? hint, hint) from DOI.gov.
We won't swipe your look & feel. Don't swipe ours.
