Curator's Coffee -- "Looking at Earth from Space with NASA"

Thursday, August 14, 9:30 AM to Thursday, August 14, 11:00 AM
MPR

NASA conducts comprehensive research on our planet with sophisticated satellites orbiting 700 km above the surface. The satellites observe and record our changing atmosphere, oceans, polar regions, forests, croplands, urban areas, natural disasters and more. Visualization specialists and others at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center have created stunning animations of the satellites’ images and videos of scientists explaining their work. This presentation will feature some of the best of those visuals. Participants will be able to explore their areas of interest in Earth observations and receive handouts that guide them to additional resources.

Jeannette Allen is a remote sensing communications and public engagement specialist for Earth-observing satellite missions, working for Sigma Space Corp. at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. She makes NASA's research and data accessible for public and classroom use.  She has a Master's degree in Biogeography (Goddard College).
