NASA takes a global perspective on Earth's climate

The agency's research encompasses solar activity, sea level rise, the temperature of the atmosphere and the oceans, the state of the ozone layer, air pollution, and changes in sea ice and land ice. NASA scientists regularly appear in the mainstream press as climate experts. So how did the space agency end up taking such a big role in climate science?

"Suit Up - 50 Years of Spacewalks" celebrates 50 years of extravehicular activity (EVA) or spacewalks that began with the first two EVAs conducted by Russian Alexey Leonov in March 1965 and American astronaut Edward White in June 1965. This documentary features interviews with astronauts, engineers and designers and personal stories and thoughts that cover the full EVA experience. See it online. http://ow.ly/NLG1H

How CO2's rise was discovered...

The Keeling Curve is a graph which plots the ongoing change in concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere since 1958. Many scientists credit Keeling's graph with first bringing the world's attention to the current increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

You've probably heard that carbon dioxide is warming the Earth. But how exactly is it doing it? Lieven Scheire uses a rainbow, a light bulb and a bit of quantum physics to describe the science behind global warming.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed — and yet the global demand for it continues to increase. Joshua M. Sneideman examines the many ways in which energy cycles through our planet.
