  • Alliance members can use our latest Earth Science Telecon resources to show audiences how NASA Earth Science is saving time, money, and lives in disaster areas across the globe.
  • Celebrating Earth's Beauty - Looking for Earth images?  The best Earth images are usually kept here.  You can just print out your favorites, and maybe laminate them for longevity. Alternatively, you can use the official NASA ebook / iPad app, "Earth as Art."
    Here's one of our all-time favorites from the gallery, an Earthrise:
  • For 2017, NASA's Earth Day campaign was Adopt the Planet. Engage your audiences in real NASA data. Enter your name (or any text) to see Earth science data from a randomly selected location on Earth.  Rinse and repeat.  It's still a great way to engage in real data, as it's a quick and easy avenue to the more complex Worldview platform which some might find intimidating to use.
  • For 2017, Read JPL's Teachable Moment blog post about using Earth Science Data.
