The popular environmental slogan “Think Globally, Act Locally” began appearing on car bumper stickers across the United States during the late 1960s, the phrase usually accompanied by a large, blue and white photograph of the Earth. NASA took that photograph from space, and Neil Maher’s interactive presentation begins by explaining how this powerful image of “Whole Earth” helped give rise to the modern environmental movement. Yet Maher’s presentation also explores the scientific side of this history by explaining how NASA’s space technology produced data that enabled environmental scientists to track global ecological changes in the atmosphere, under the sea, and on land. NASA’s Earth-orbiting satellites, for instance, allowed environmental scientists to identify the ozone hole above the Antarctic, map deforestation across the Amazon, and measure slight temperature increases throughout the world that supported early theories regarding global warming. Maher’s presentation, which includes a multimedia component comprised of film footage from space taken by Apollo astronauts and video recordings of NASA scientists, will help participants better understand the central role played by NASA not only in sparking the modern environmental movement but also in shaping scientific understanding of the current climate change crisis.
