NASA has been an international leader in Earth sciences since its inception. The agency's understanding of the importance of this work has matured ever since Apollo 8's amazing Earthrise image allowed us to first see our precious planet from space, and the 'Earth Movement' — 'living green' — has become an international imperative. While we continue to contribute to scientific understanding of the many complex forces that contribute to climate change, global leaders are crafting new policies to respond to these concerns. In anticipating and ensuring compliance with these new requirements, NASA also has a unique opportunity to become an international leader in the application of green engineering to aerospace programs and projects, allowing us to continue exploration in a manner that is environmentally responsible and benefits humankind.
