NASA is honouring the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, on Wednesday 22 April, with online events, stories and resources highlighting the space agency’s contributions to sustaining and improving the planet’s environment.
NASA’s Earth Day content and activities, which starts on Monday, includes the Curious Universe podcast which takes listeners on a tour of the many ways the agency observes and studies the planet, and Make Your Own Satellite View of Earth which enables users to create their own Earth Day snapshot or animated GIF from 20 years-worth of satellite views of the planet taken from NASA’s online data archive.
On Earth Day itself, there will be a live Q&A with Astronaut Chris Cassidy who will be taking questions from the International Space Station; and a live broadcast of NASA Science Live which will explore important discoveries about the planet, advances in green technology and aircraft.
