NASA and the Weather In-Person

NASA has been monitoring the earth’s weather since the beginning of the space age.  Since there is no better way to track global cloud cover and fast-moving storm patterns, weather satellites have become a vital resource for meteorologists and climate scientists around the world.

Join NASA Ambassador Jim Porter to discover the exciting but very difficult on-going mission to predict the weather. Starting with events on the sun, orbiting the earth every 90 minutes and scanning the entire globe every 30 seconds, NASA satellites touch your life every time you tune in for a weather report. These are the NASA missions that save thousands of lives every year.

Jim Porter worked for over two decades as an aerospace engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA and Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. His presentations are popular, engaging and easy to listen to for all levels.
