NASA may be well known for exploring Mars and worlds beyond, but did you know that the agency has more than a dozen Earth-science satellites collecting important data about our planet's changing climate and its impacts on our daily lives? This fleet of spacecraft provides crucial insight on everything from rising seas to carbon emissions to melting ice and even extreme weather.
In this educational live stream from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, JPL education specialist Brandon Rodriguez will be joined by public outreach specialist for Earth missions Annie Richardson to discuss how NASA monitors the health of our planet and how the newest addition to the Earth-science fleet, Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, will take our understanding even further. The presentation will conclude with a short discussion for educators about how the content of the presentation can be aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and related educational resources from NASA.
