Climate change, Air Quality, and Ozone... all are important considerations for Earth System scientists and the public alike. How will we learn more about the chemistry of Earth's atmosphere? Scientists are counting on an upcoming Earth Observing System Satellite Mission called Aura. Join NASA's Special Project Initiatives Office (SPI) on Thursday, November 20th at 1 p.m. EST for a one-hour Webcast, "Aura: Up Close," -- LIVE from the high-bay clean room that houses the spacecraft at Northrop Grumman Corporation in Redondo Beach, California.

Learn more about Aura and its mission as the engineers and technologists who have built the spacecraft take you on a tour of its instruments and how they function. Post a question from your computer to be answered live during the broadcast.

On November 20th, go to the SPI Office site to participate.
