The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

NASA is marking 20 years of continuous human presence aboard the ISS by spotlighting its unique research capabilities, including a rotating suite of self-contained external payloads that continuously collect data as the station orbits Earth. In this webinar, we look back at our home planet to explore clouds and aerosols with the CATS lidar instrument while also peering into the Universe with AMS to analyze dark matter and cosmic rays. Relevant instructional resources will also be included.
