Terra featured in NASA’s Earth Observer

NASA’s The Earth Observer’s November-December Issue highlighted Terra and the accomplishments of the team of scientists and engineers who contribute to Terra’s twenty years of valuable scientific data collection.

The Terra team was recognized as the recipient fo the 2019 Pecora Group Award.

Terra’s contributions to how we view our entire planet, affectionately called the Blue Marble, were recognized as part of the Blue Marble story.

Additionally, NASA’s Earth Observatory, known for being a major source to the public of images, stories, and discoveries about the environment, Earth systems, and climate that emerge from NASA research, was featured for their twenty years of operation. NASA’s Earth Observatory website was born out of Terra’s education and outreach initiative during launch.
