NASA Earth Observatory News

The NASA Earth Observatory is an initiative by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) designed to provide a freely accessible online platform where the public can view new satellite imagery and scientific information about our planet. Launched in 1999, the Earth Observatory offers a wealth of data that includes images, stories, and discoveries about climate and the environment both on a global scale and localized regions. It serves as an important educational resource, helping to explain complex environmental processes through easily understandable visualizations and narratives. The content covers a broad range of topics, including changes in climate, sea level, the atmosphere, forests, and energy use, making critical scientific information accessible to educators, scientists, and the general public alike. This initiative underscores NASA’s commitment to studying Earth’s systems and promoting awareness about the challenges and changes our planet faces.
