Sometimes, in order for something to be seen clearly, we need to take a step back and look at it from a distance, with a new perspective. The same goes for our planet. Since the first color image of the world from space was captured from a NASA weather capsule in 1967, scientists have been using such data to better understand life on earth. Tomorrow, the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History will open an exhibit titled Earth from Space. This 20-poster set features beautiful images from across the globe that illustrate how satellite imagery is gathered, what sorts of technologies are used to gather it, and how this information is used to better mankind's understanding of the third rock from the sun. The display is available for view daily through April, and admission is $8 for adults and $7 for students, seniors and youth. National Museum of Nuclear Science and History • Sat Feb 2 • 9 am-5 pm • $7-$8 • View on Alibi calendar
