Apps and Games
"It’s free, it’s dazzling and it puts Earth in the palm of your hands. NASA’s “Earth Now” app displays real-time global satellite data of your planet’s vital signs. Great for students, teachers and anyone interested in Earth science, this 3D app can be your go-to source for carbon dioxide conditions, gravity anomalies, ozone levels over Antarctica and more."
Human activities, a changing climate and natural disasters are rapidly altering the face of our planet. Both NASA satellites and ground photographers have captured these changes in the form of eye-opening before-and-after images of phenomena ranging from glacial retreat to urbanization. Each image can be viewed side-by-side or with an interactive slider and in context on a world map.
NASA’s latest educational game is part-pong, part-resource management and 100 percent retro. The goal is to slow the pace of global warming, and players learn about the global carbon cycle, different carbon sources and ways alternative energy and reforestation can help offset those sources. Take on the challenge if you think you have quick fingers and strong multitasking skills!
