2020 NASA Science Calendar
PDF icon 2020 NASA Science Calendar 508 final.pdf

The 2020 NASA Science Calendar: There’s never been a better year to explore, never a better time to step into the unknown, and never a better opportunity to help protect and improve life on Earth as a result of this work. In fact, during the last few years, NASA Science has set the foundation for defining moments in many areas. Our groundbreaking science, innovative approaches, and inspiring missions are opening the door and leading the way for NASA to go forward to the Moon and ultimately Mars. Our partners in the science community have risen to the challenge with us, and we are actively experimenting with new partnership approaches that help get more science per dollar. Because of the foundation we have built, we are on the verge of new discoveries to further expand human knowledge. Our journey is helping us understand our home planet, our place in the universe, and to search for life elsewhere. The future’s potential is rich. And it’s global. Nature continues to amaze us with its art and beauty. This calendar highlights just a few of the many ways that NASA Science is making discoveries that affect us all and showcases some pioneers and leaders in the field who make us all aspire to constantly reach even higher. The discoveries we make today are inspiring a new generation to follow in our footsteps. Science is for everyone, and I invite all to join us on this journey to explore together and learn through the power of discovery.

Nunca ha habido un mejor año para explorar, nunca un mejor momento para adentrarse en lo desconocido y nunca una mejor oportunidad para ayudar a proteger y mejorar la vida en la Tierra como resultado de nuestro trabajo. De hecho, durante los últimos años, la ciencia de la NASA ha sentado las bases para definir hitos en muchas áreas. Nuestra ciencia pionera, métodos innovadores y misiones inspiradoras están abriendo la puerta y liderando el camino para que la NASA avance hacia la Luna y hacia Marte. Nuestros socios en la comunidad científica han asumido este desafío junto a nosotros y estamos experimentando activamente con nuevos enfoques de colaboración que nos permitan obtener más resultados científicos por cada dólar. Gracias a los cimientos que hemos construido, nos encontramos al filo de nuevos descubrimientos que expandirán aún más el conocimiento humano. Nuestro viaje nos está ayudando a entender nuestro planeta natal, nuestro lugar en el universo, y a buscar vida en el espacio. El potencial del futuro es rico. Y es global. La naturaleza continúa asombrándonos con su arte y belleza. Este calendario resalta solo algunas de las muchas formas en que la ciencia de la NASA está realizando descubrimientos que nos afectan a todos y presenta a algunos de los pioneros y líderes que nos inspiran constantemente a llegar más alto.Los descubrimientos que hacemos hoy están inspirando a una nueva generación a seguir nuestros pasos. La ciencia es para todos, por lo que os invitamos a uniros en este viaje para explorar juntos y aprender a través del poder del descubrimiento.

GRACE-FO Mission Brochure
PDF icon GRACE_FO Mission Brochure_508.pdf, Binary Data GRACE_FO.ibooks

Changes in how mass is distributed within and between Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, groundwater and ice sheets are fundamental indicators of the large-scale dynamics of the planet. For more than 15 years, NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission monitored mass changes every month with far-reaching impact on our understanding of the Earth system and how it is evolving. GRACE Follow-On (GRACE-FO) continues the legacy of GRACE, tracking Earth’s water movement and surface mass changes across the planet. Monitoring changes in ice sheets and glaciers, near-surface and underground water storage, the amount of water in large lakes and rivers, as well as changes in sea level and ocean currents provides an integrated global view of how Earth’s water cycle and energy balance are evolving—measurements that have important applications for everyday life.

How To: Hyperwall Playlist
PDF icon How to Assemble a Playlist for a Hyperwall Presentation_508[1].pdf

NASA’s Hyperwall is a video wall capable of displaying multiple high-definition data visualizations and/or images simultaneously across an arrangement of screens. Functioning as a key component at many NASA exhibits, the hyperwall is used to help explain phenomena, ideas, or examples of world change. These six steps will help you assemble a Hyperwall playlist, i.e., a list of media files, in chronological order, that you’d like to display on the Hyperwall.
