Science in the Cause of National & Global Security

NASA Announcement: Unlimited access to the 16-plus-year database for the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (Japan) Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) instrument, which flies aboard NASA's Terra satellite. ASTER’s database, more than 2.95 million individual scenes is worldwide....

"We anticipate a dramatic increase in the number of users of our data, with new and exciting results to come," said Michael Abrams, ASTER science team leader at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, home to ASTER's U.S. science team.

The DSCOVR Mission

Images of Earth from DSCOVR-EPIC in Lagrange orbit, daily 'selfies' from a million miles away




DSCOVR is launched and on its way!

Feb 12, 2015 The DSCOVR satellite with its EPIC cam, PlasMag & NISTAR instrument package is on the way... a million mile journey, in approx four months, it will light up, be tested and begin delivering data to Earth, including near-real-time imaging of Earth provided online.

GreenPolicy360 is assisting NASA DSCOVR mission managers and we will be delivering a stream of amazing imagery of our planet as NASA/NOAA begin uploading EPICs pictures of ... Planet Earth 'selfies'!


Feb 8, 2015 DSCOVR, EPIC and PlasMag ready to launch

NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory spacecraft, DSCOVR carries three advanced instruments -- an 'Earthcam' capability instrument called EPIC, which can see visible light and "wavelengths that can tell scientists about aerosols, which cool the atmosphere, and about ozone, clouds, vegetation, and ultraviolet light... EPIC will capture 'whole earth' images, the first that will be made available since Apollo's mission in 1972.

"Another sensor, PlasMag, will keep an eye on solar weather and give the Earth updates whenever a storm on the Sun threatened to fry broad swaths of the electrical grid. That's a high-risk, low-probability event that has never happened at the feared scale. Fortunately. Yet.

"The third instrument, NISTAR, will help calculate the Earth’s energy “budget,” the measurement perhaps most critical to understanding global warming: Is more heat coming in than is going out?" [Bloomberg]

Monitoring the Home Planet

As the realization of the critical importance of studying life systems of the planet has grown, the priorities of NASA have shifted.

The incoming US Congress will have to address the evident risks and dangers to the planet, even though its leadership denies risks and dangers.

As we review the latest from the US space agency's new focus, take a look at Pulse of the Planet, Vital Signs released Sept 2014...

NASA Climate: Vital Signs of the Planet

Where did Earth Right Now start as a mission?

NASA's Earth Science Enterprise (ESE) -- Originally called "Mission to Planet Earth (MTPE)"

Mission to Planet Earth .jpg

NASA's Earth Science Division' plans and manages earth science programs including Earth Right Now.

"The Earth Science Enterprise (ESE)is dedicated to "understanding the total Earth system and the effects of natural and human-induced changes on the global environment."

NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) provides "long-term global observations of land surfaces, biosphere, solid Earth, atmosphere, and oceans."

The Earth Science Projects Division manages the missions which advance our understanding of the Earth.

We need to develop Earth Science as a comprehensive factual set of measurements if we are to secure and manage the future of the Earth Systems

In the 1980s, the U.S. House Science, Space and Technology Committee led a new Earth vision and NASA embraced the concept of Earth system science with a global perspective of Earth monitoring

The continuing mission of NASA, its partners and Earth Science research remains vital to [1] new understandings of national and global security

We are in a race against time

We need the best possible scientific knowledge to protect and preserve "The Commons"

as 'wise stewards' securing communities, nations and global eco-systems
