Looking Home: OCO-3 and Science from the ISS
November 14 & 15
We live on a dynamic, living planet. Land shifts. Seas rise. Volcanoes erupt. Storms rage. Snow melts. Plants grow. Cities expand. These ever-changing, interconnected systems affect Earth–our planet, our home. The best way to cope with these changes is to better understand them through NASA’s unique perspective in space.
From its perch on the International Space Station, the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 (OCO-3), along with a suite of Earth-observing instruments, will improve our understanding of the interaction between carbon and climate. By mapping carbon dioxide over land and sea, OCO-3 gives scientists a better view of the global ecosystem and the health of our planet.
Join members of the OCO-3 project team for a night of science conversation, tales from the little mission that could, and a renewed charge for a changing future.
