Test your knowledge based on the film in Ocean Science Center
Our Instrumented Earth celebrates NASA’s advances in technology and illuminates how information can be harnessed to increase understanding of Earth’s systems to enhance human lives and protect our planet.
This Science on a Sphere show in the Aquarium’s Ocean Science Center gives viewers a global perspective of complex Earth systems and tell stories about our planet and the environment. The wide variety of high-tech instruments monitoring our planet from space, on Earth’s surface, and under the ocean, are providing large amounts of data in real time, allowing scientists to understand the planet better than ever before. Using this data, scientists and other experts are able to understand human impact on the environment. Viewers learn how scientists are using instruments to predict weather, monitor environmental changes, and even save lives.
