This videotape tours the Solar System and outer space using scientific visualizations from Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the HPCC Earth and Space Sciences Project. At the Sun, simulations investigate processes that create magnetic field and release energetic particles. Earth science begins with the Pacific Ocean, studying the 1997-98 El Nino and Cyclone Susan. Crossing the globe, visualizations trace North America’s East Coast and ocean currents in the North...

Station Reel Time: Power Systems Description: Examines how electricity will be generated on the International Space Station. The Space Station is the largest structure ever built in space. It will be powered by eight solar panels that collect energy from the sun through the use of photovoltaic cells. Photvoltaic cells are used on Earth too, in toys, solar calculators, at school crossings and many other places. Once the energy is collected it will be used to charge batteries which will provide...

Weather affects our daily lives.The elements of weather: rain, wind, fog, ice and snow affect the operation and flight of an airplane. In this program, NASA and FAA researchers will introduce students to math, science, and weather; demonstrate how these elements influence flight; and show how NASA and FAA research is used to limit the effects of these elements on flight. Students will examine: the tools, techniques, and technologies used by engineers and scientists to detect these and other...

“Our Water Planet From Space” is a videotape of two previously broadcast live interactive shows that explore the world’s oceans. Program 1: Oceans in Motion Ocean Circulation-the movement of water carrying heat and matter – not only affects life in the oceans but also weather and climate around the world. Because the oceans are so expansive, covering two-thirds of Earth, the only way to study them on a broad scale is by observing them from space. NASA and its partners use this unique...
