NASA has exciting news! EarthKAM has just launched a new beta version of its Web site. Middle school educators are invited to join NASA for the International Space Station Spring 2010 Mission from April 27-30, 2010, and be beta testers of the new site and software. Find out more about this exciting opportunity that allows students to take pictures of Earth from a digital camera aboard the International Space Station.
ISS EarthKAM is a NASA-sponsored project that provides stunning, high-quality photographs of Earth taken from the space shuttle and the space station. Since 1996, ISS EarthKAM students have taken thousands of photographs of Earth by using the World Wide Web to direct a digital camera on select spaceflights and, currently, on the International Space Station.
