Space Station Live: An Earth Day View of Earth
NASA Commentator Amiko Kauderer talks with Dr. Lisa Vanderbloemen, the manager of the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, about the pictures of Earth gathered by International Space Station crew members during the Crew Earth Observation experiment. Taking advantage of the perch 250 miles above the planet, astronauts can capture images that document the impact that the human inhabitants of Earth have on their planet and let experts monitor natural disasters. Most of the images are available to the public online at the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
