Imagine that you're orbiting the Earth aboard the International Space Station. What if you could access a heads-up display, offering multiple views of the planet below, as seen through the eyes of NASA's fleet of Earth observation satellites?

NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio created this video for a special evening event at Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. Several Earth scientists from Goddard Space Flight Center were speakers at the conference, titled "Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of Our Planet."


This animation was used to illustrate the interconnectedness of the many Earth-based data sets that NASA has produced over the last decade.
