That's Hot: Visualizing NASA Climate Science Data

NASA isn't just sending rovers to Mars and astronauts to the International Space Station. Find out how the space agency is studying our home planet and why it's working to make the Earth science data it collects understandable and meaningful to the public, policy makers and media. See where NASA’s 16 Earth-orbiting satellites are right now, and learn how their data can be viewed on your phone, often within hours of being collected. Hear from communicators and designers working with climate change scientists to put a planet's worth of information in your hand via mobile apps, interactive websites, near real-time visualizations, and social media. Plus, get a sneak peek at NASA Earth-observing missions launching in 2014-2015. Earth is changing. We're on it.
