Create Earth Day Video, Win Seats To A Launch From the first television images of Earth from space, to the now iconic Apollo photographs of Earth, to Voyager’s “pale blue dot,” has changed how we think about exploring Earth and even how we see Earth. Looking back from space provides far more than thought-provoking pictures. NASA’s fleet of Earth-observing satellites orbits our planet multiple times each day, scanning the air, land and seas for critical information about how our planet behaves and how it is changing. Computer-aided visualization of these otherwise invisible reams of data continues to show us radical new ways of looking at Earth. To mark Earth Day 2012, we are for the second year in a row inviting you to create your own compelling video vision of NASA’s exploration of Earth — The Home Frontier. Submit your creation to us and a panel of judges will select the best submission, with a fitting award on the line. The winner will receive behind-the-scenes access to the next rocket launch of a NASA Earth-observing satellite. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM), a joint project of NASA and the US Geological Survey, is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in January 2013.
