'Know Your Earth' 2.0
11.07.11
 
Know Your Earth 2.0, Chicago, is a collaboration among 12 of NASA's Earth-observing satellite missions. Focusing on the “on-the-go” and “smart-technology” public in big cities is vital to informing the public about how our Earth works and how NASA research is increasing our understanding of our home planet. The project’s first release city is Chicago, Illinois. A city steeped in culture, architecture, and history, Chicago lends itself to being a city that is perfect for this type of ground-breaking project.
