Welcome to Earth Matters, the news and notes blog of Earth Observatory. And welcome to an ongoing conversation about our amazing planet.
Earth Matters will be composed by the science writers, data visualizers, and web developers of Earth Observatory and of NASA’s Earth Science News Team. We are former journalists and scientists, communications majors and science majors, news hounds and would-be poets…all who work with NASA-funded scientists to share what they see and learn.
In this blog, we will discuss what we see–and cannot see–from NASA’s perch above the Earth. We’ll try to answer your questions, share what we are reading and viewing, and update you on Earth news and events that might not show up in your local media. We will share some thoughts on our editorial decision-making; why did we or didn’t we cover that story. We’ll follow up on past stories that have new relevance.
This blog should also be composed by you. What do you want to see? What do you think about what you see? What’s interesting about your corner of the world?
Earth is an amazing planet, and the one that matters most to us. We love watching it in all of its beauty and fury, its texture and color, its history and its future. Let’s have a conversation about it.
