Real World: Earth Systems
Our Earth is a dynamic system with diverse subsystems that interact in complex ways.
- What are those subsystems and how do they interact?
- How are these subsystems and the global Earth system changing?
- What causes these changes?
- How does NASA monitor these changes?
- How can Earth system science provide societal benefit?
Real World: Ozone Alerts
NASA's SAGE III instrument will provide valuable information to help us understand how our global Earth system is changing. Find out the difference between good ozone and bad ozone. Learn about the health problems that a small percent of our atmosphere, or only a few parts per billion, can create.
Launchpad: SAGE III Goes to the International Space Station
NASA's third generation science instrument, SAGE III, sheds light on how aerosols, water vapor and other gases interact with and affect our atmosphere. See how a unique hexapod helps the instrument stay oriented on the International Space Station and how NASA plans to use moonrise and moonset to double measurement capabilities, helping us truly understand the chemical balance in our atmosphere.
Launchpad: Night Shining Clouds
Have you ever seen noctilucent or night-shining clouds in the summer sky? Explore the layers of our atmosphere. Find out why NASA is interested in how these glowing clouds are formed and what they tell us about Earth.
Interactive Lesson: In this activity participants will create a picture of the sun that can then be examined with colored filters to simulate how specialized instruments enable scientists to capture images and view different features of the sun.
