    NASA Citizen Scientists Help Keep Us Safe from Near Earth Objects - NASA NEW!

        Near Earth Objects (NEOs) are asteroids or comets whose orbits bring them near the Earth.  Sixty-five million years ago, a NEO the size of Mount Everest hit the Earth off the coast of Mexico, leading to the extinction of the dinosaurs.  More recently, in 2013, a NEO exploded near Chelyabinsk, Russia injuring about 1,500 people. NASA’s International Astronomical Search Collaboration organizes asteroid searches around the world.   These IASC participants from the Vorobyoby Gory Education Center in Moscow spotted three new objects that are possibly dangerous “Near Earth Objects”. From left to right: Egor Makushinskiy, Ivan Spasic, Dr. Denis Densienko, and Sofia Abdoldin. (Credit:  Dr. Denis Denisenko).Now citizen scientists around the world are helping NASA locate NEOs to keep us safe from potential catastrophes. This month, citizen scientists participating in NASA’s International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC) spotted three likely NEOs using images provided by the 1.8-m Pan-STARRS 1 telescope located on Haleakala, Maui. It will take more observing work to confirm these objects, but these young citizen scientists, from the Vorobyovy Gory Education Center in Moscow, Russia, are ready. Don’t worry, these objects are not presently expected to collide with Earth! Each year 2,100 citizen scientist groups from 80 countries participate in the asteroid searches organized by IASC.  Participation is free, and anyone interested can contact IASC by email at iascsearch@hsutx.edu.Links: The IASC web site is located at http://iasc.cosmosearch.org/.Social Media:The IASC Facebook account is located at https://www.facebook.com/iasc.news/.For more information on NASA Citizen Science activities visit us at https://science.nasa.gov/citizenscienceNews Article Type: News ArticlePublished: Friday, February 21, 2020 - 13:12

    ‘SAGE’ Advice from Around the World: SERVIR exchange brings NASA E... - NASA NEW!

        Leah Kucera is the technical reporting and communications lead for the SERVIR Science Coordination Office. SERVIR is a joint initiative of NASA’s Earth Applied Sciences’s Capacity Building Program and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Photo Caption: Leah Kucera at SERVIR’s Annual Global Exchange (SAGE) meeting in Cambodia. Credit: Utsav MadenOn a breezy, 90-degree morning in February—9,000-ish miles away from my office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama—I arrived at the SERVIR Annual Global Exchange (SAGE). This year, over 120 people from the SERVIR network traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Representing a wide range of experience and disciplines—from academics to development experts—our shared goal addresses how satellite data is used to help countries tackle some of the most challenging issues here on Earth.SAGE is an intensive 5-day experience unlike any other meeting I’ve attended. Participants come from almost every continent, with exchanges tending to take place in areas SERVIR works. Cambodia is both home to a USAID mission and a focus country for the SERVIR Mekong hub in Bangkok, Thailand. The hub actively supports several initiatives in the country, including helping detect land cover change in protected areas as part of the USAID Greening Prey Lang program, and working with the Mekong River Commission to improve flood mapping.The year 2020 marks the 15th anniversary of the SERVIR program, connecting the power of NASA’s vantage point from space to development challenges on the ground. SERVIR works in five hubs across the globe—located in Colombia, Niger, Kenya, Nepal and Thailand—applying satellite data to issues like food security, flood prediction and forest health. Scientists around the world face very different, and often time-consuming barriers to research. Technical considerations taken for granted, like accessing the Internet, can be slow and expensive in other countries. In West Africa, downloading one gigabyte (GB) of data costs about 8.5% of an average person’s income. Whereas in many parts of Asia, the same GB is roughly 1.5%. (For some context in the Earth science community: a single Landsat 8 scene ranges from one to two GB!) The power of SAGE is bringing together these different perspectives, making connections and enabling the partnerships and knowledge sharing that helps put data in the hands of people that need it most. SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya and Science Coordination Office team members at a regional breakout session. Credit: Utsav MadenIn addition to sharing research and program activities happening across the SERVIR network, SAGE is a space for tackling difficult questions: How can scientists and developers better work together? How can we improve listening to users, ask the right questions, and develop smarter, more useful applications? How can Earth science provide more accessible insights to help decisions made and actions taken on the ground?  From left to right: Marina Irigoyen and Simone Staiger-Rivas from SERVIR Amazonia, Applied Science Team member Naiara Pinto, and Africa Flores from the NASA SERVIR Science Coordination Office in between meetings at SAGE. Credit: Simone Staiger-RivasThe week contained sessions ranging from discussions on integrating gender and social inclusion into applied science to “SAGE” technical advice on processing Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) with NASA computing resources. Interactive poster sessions outlined SERVIR tools and services in use around the world, promoting cross-country collaboration and discussions. I even led a technical workshop centered on bringing user experience (UX) design principles to improve how we display Earth science data to real-world users.   Ha Nguyen, a research fellow with the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), a SERVIR Mekong consortium member, considers the path to increasing engagement with NASA science during a breakout session at SAGE. Credit: Utsav MadenMuch like how satellite images help us better understand the Earth as a system, SAGE is a powerful platform: enabling us all to become better at translating science to practice. After bringing everyone to the table to discuss overcoming cultural differences, we’ll continue to work across boundaries, pushing each other outside of the box to find new and innovative solutions.“It’s been an incredible 15 years working together with USAID and our partners to develop SERVIR into a global network. By leveraging the strength of this network, regions across the globe are now working together using Earth observation satellites to address some of our planet’s biggest problems. SAGE enables us to come together to share these experiences and plan for the future,” said Dan Irwin, NASA SERVIR Global Program Manager.By: Leah Kucera SERVIR, NASA Earth Applied SciencesRead more Making Space for Earth blog postsMaster Image:
