NASA's Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using "false color" maps. Color-coded legends are provided to indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The resulting 3D model of the Earth may be rotated by a single finger stroke, and may also be zoomed in or out by pinching 2 fingers. It was developed by the Earth Science Communications and Visualization Technology Applications and Development Teams at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with support from NASA Headquarters.
What's New in Version 2.5.11
- Replaced stale Sea Surface Salinity data with combined Soil Moisture & Sea Surface Salinity map from NASA’s SMAP satellite.
- Minor bug fixes.
More NASA Propaganda for Your Children
I just got done testing out this new app. Someone please explain to me why the app uses 3D images of the Earth instead of actual photos!
I would also like to know why there isn't any real photos of a satellite anywhere on the NASA website, Google or even this app! If we have 13,000+ satellites orbiting the Earth why don't we have any real photos of the Earth and/or a satellite in orbit?
Do yourselves a favor and keep this mind numbing junk away from your children. We don't want them growing up to be the mindless drones we have become. We expect something better for them.
Thank you so much! The app has need updating for a long time. Now it doesn't have lag, is up to date, includes more data, etc. I am so glad to be able to use it now.
Best News App Out There
When weather happens, sattellites are there.
Also: gravity, co2 and co, and more. No disappontments here.
Update: Still amazing and wth fairly smooth animations and timely updates. Thanks JPL!
