LIVE DLiNFo Channel Video Stream Event

WHEN:  Friday, November 2, 11:00 AM EST
WHERE:  The session will be available via the DLiNfo Channel and the NASATalk Blog: Tour the Japanese Experiment Module.  Either location will provide a video stream.
PRESENTER: Patricia Moore, DLN Specialist


Join the Johnson Space Center in the mock-up of the Kibo Japanese Experiment Module as we explore Astronaut Suni Williams’ mission to the International Space Station. Students will learn about the microgravity environment and how we use research conducted on the space station to enhance the quality of life on Earth.

Preview content available about the Kibo Japanese Experiment Module on NASATalk. Learn about resources available through the DLiNfo Channel and the Johnson Space Center.

Kibo Means Hope. One of a series of digital still images documenting the Japanese Experiment Module, or JEM, also called Kibo, in its new home on the International Space Station, this view depicts Kibo's exterior, backdropped by solar array panels for the orbital outpost and one of its trusses. The main Kibo lab was installed during the first spacewalk of this, the STS-124, mission. Image Credit: NASA

NASA Innovations in Climate Change

NASA Innovations in Climate Education promotes climate and Earth system science literacy and seeks to increase the access of underrepresented minority groups to science careers and educational opportunities. With its support for 71 education projects from across the country, NICE leverages NASA's unique contributions in climate science, including Earth observation data and Earth system models, to reach teachers and students.

ETE-GCC BiodiversityExploring the Environment: Global Climate Change provides six problem-based learning modules that address the following climate science topics: Global Temperatures, Biodiversity (featured in the screen shot shown at left), Drought, Human Health, Ice Caps and Sea Levels, and Volcanoes.

NASA Earth Science Week: October 14-20, 2012
Learners of all ages can connect to an incredible group of NASA Earth Explorers -- from scientists and engineers, to multimedia producers, educators and writers. Find out about their careers, why and how they study the planet and what their typical day is like. Blog posts, Google+ Hangouts and Twitter chats, as well as a webinar and radio interview in Spanish, are just some of the media activities that will allow explorers to tell their stories.

Climate Science News

The National Snow and Ice Data Center <>  (NSIDC) and NASA announced <>  in mid-September that the extent of Arctic sea ice had dropped to 3.41 million square kilometers (1.32 million square miles)—well below the previous record of 4.17 million square kilometers (1.61 million square miles) set in 2007.

UB geologists studying this remote region found that the island's glaciers reacted rapidly to past climate change, providing a rare glimpse into glacier sensitivity to climate events.
