Students invited to Glory mission "Sunday Experiment" November 21

Sunday, November 21, from 1-3 PM, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland invites students and their parents to a fun "Sunday Experiment" about the soon-to-launch Glory mission.  Instruments on the Glory satellite will provide data giving new insight into atmospheric aerosols – dust, volcanic gases, soot, and other constituents that affect the scattering and absorption of solar radiation – which influence the Earth's climate. The Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) is the designated archive and distribution center for data from NASA's Glory mission.

At November's Sunday Experiment, held at the Visitor's Center, participants will be able to create a satellite (with cookies!), see "Science on a Sphere" presentations, and hear an expert speaker explain what scientists will learn with Glory.  

For more information, read the Glory Sunday Experiment news release.

So come to GSFC to fill your brains with information about the Glory mission before you fill your tummies with Thanksgiving turkey!
