NASA frequently produces stunning visualizations, whether of distant worlds or of our own home planet. These remarkable images come out so frequently that it’s easy to forget the science and engineering that goes on behind the scenes to bring these visualizations to life.
The 2015 Earth Science week (Oct. 11-17) focuses on the theme “Visualizing Earth Systems.” This year, a series of blog posts will take readers through some tough science questions being asked and explain how visualizations are helping answer these questions. This original series is intended for readers of all ages and delves into the work of NASA scientists, visualizers and educators as they share their most exciting projects and what got them interested in visualizing Earth systems.
