What does the EOS logo mean?

A globe - or an eyeball? The EOS logo represents both the dynamism of our planet and our scientific observations of the changing Earth. Represented in the design are the four basic elements delineated by Plato: fire (red for volcanic magma); wind (with gray evoking the atmosphere); water (represented by a blue sea); and earth (brown for terra firma).
