Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of Our Planet by NASA
Static Preview

Our planet is a beautiful and awesome place. In a new video, join NASA scientists on a 40-minute visual tour of Earth from space, presented at the IMAX Theater at National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. on September 10.

"Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of Our Planet" was the theme for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center's fifteenth installment of its annual lecture and reception sponsored by the Maryland Space Business Roundtable. Published on Oct 23, 2014

Earth is a complex, dynamic system we do not yet fully understand. Like the human body, the Earth system comprises diverse components that interact in complex ways.

On this global tour, scientists lead the viewer through Earth's water cycle, forests and frozen regions as seen through the eyes of NASA's Earth observing satellite fleet. They share a story of how we can make life better today and into the future.

NASA's Earth science program aims to develop a greater understanding of Earth's system and its response to natural or human-induced changes, and to improve predictions of climate, weather and natural disasters.
