Want more Planetary and Earth Science research from NASA?
Going forward, open access is the word @ NASA's "PubSpace".
The move is part of a welcome (and 'digital citizen' advocated) trend in the worldwide scientific community towards making knowledge more readily available.
“Making our research data easier to access will greatly magnify the impact of our research,” NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan said in a statement. “As scientists and engineers, we work by building upon a foundation laid by others.” Read More about the initiative and "Why It's a Big Deal".
“At NASA, we are celebrating this opportunity to extend access to our extensive portfolio of scientific and technical publications,” said NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman. “Through open access and innovation we invite the global community to join us in exploring Earth, air and space.”

Stephen Hawking on ITV (and PBS)
"Runaway climate change... A rise in ocean temperature would melt the ice-caps... with catastrophic effects." #AGW #CAGW
Often referred to as an Einstein of our current era, Stephen Hawking points to "runaway climate change" as a profound threat to global security. In the same (labored) breath, he communicates a profound warning re: the other existential threat he sees -- nuclear weapons. At Strategic Demands the escalating threat of nuclear weapons is revealed and tracked -- as Cold War 2.0.
