Help comb our galaxy for stars with planet-forming disks! This is the first NASA led and funded crowdsourcing project whose main goal is to produce publishable scientific results.

DSCOVR: EPIC -- Earth Polychromatic Camera

See images of the entire sunlit side of Earth, and watch time-lapse videos of Earth spinning created from those images. The Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera, or EPIC, is one million miles from the planet. The camera is attached to NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory, or DSCOVR, satellite. DSCOVR orbits where the matching pull of gravity from the sun and Earth allows the satellite to stay relatively stable between the two bodies. From this distance, EPIC captures a color image of the sunlit side of Earth at least once every two hours. This capability allows researchers to track features as the planet rotates in the instrument's field of view. See some of the best images of Earth.

Earth Math Educator Guide

This book provides many of the quantitative skills your students will need to make sense out of climate change. To think quantitatively about climate change, students must become fluent in working with Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales. Students also should understand the difference between watts, kilowatts and kilowatt hours; tons and gigatons; and BTUs and tons of carbon dioxide. All of these units appear in news stories about climate change and human impacts on the environment. The problems in this guide include basic mathematics, algebra, geometry and some trigonometric functions. The one-page assignments are accompanied by one-page answer keys.
