NASA kicks off its 2014 Earth Campaign
22 January 2014
NASA's 2014 Earth Right Now Campaign began last week, signalling the start of an ambitious year for the agency's Earth science departments. For the first time in more than a decade, NASA will be launching five Earth science missions in a single year.
NASA plans to celebrate the kickoff with a media teleconference highlighting events for the year and a NASA TV video file that profiles the five events, shares comments from NASA Headquarters leadership, and offers information on Earth science instruments from the International Space Station (ISS) crew.
The kickoff will be followed by a 27 January prelaunch press conference at the Goddard Space Flight Center for the launch of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM).
