Awesome NASA video shows us 18 different satellite views of Earth, all at the same time
Thursday, October 2, 2014, 2:10 PM - Have you ever wanted to check out every different satellite view of our planet, seeing Earth's energy balance, ocean circulations, atmospheric conditions, the state of the biosphere and even things like the force of gravity? NASA gives us all that, and more, in the above video!
According to NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio website:
"On September 10, 2014, NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) was celebrated in an evening event at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. The title of this event was "Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of Our Planet", and the speakers at this event included several Earth Scientists from Goddard Space Flight Center. This animation was used in the beginning of the event to illustrate the interconnectedness of the many Earth-based data sets that NASA has produced over the last decade or so. The animation simulates a view of the Earth from the International Space Station, over which interconnected data sets are displayed as if on a head-up display."
