NASA has recently published a 360-degree interactive video titled “The call of science”. You can join NASA Earth scientists as they head into the field to study ice in Greenland and coral reefs in Hawaii.
NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, save and improve lives, and safeguard our future.
The space agency monitors Earth’s vital signs from land, air, and space with a fleet of satellites and ambitious airborne and ground-based observation campaigns. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth’s interconnected natural systems with long-term data records. The agency freely shares this unique knowledge and works with institutions around the world.
Scientists worldwide use NASA data to tackle some of the biggest questions about how our planet is changing now and how Earth could change in the future. From rising sea levels to the changing availability of freshwater, NASA enables studies that unravel the complexities of our planet from the highest reaches of Earth’s atmosphere to its core.
NASA’s Earth science work also makes a difference in people’s lives around the world every day. From farms to our national parks, from today’s response to natural disasters to tomorrow’s air quality, from the Arctic to the Amazon, NASA is working for you 24/7.
