NASA’s new app highlights earth’s climate change


US: NASA has recently announced an iPad app that shows the Earth changing before a user”s eyes, with interactive before-and-after views of the planet”s altered face.

“Images of change gives users an astronaut”s or Earth explorer”s view of the changes occurring on our planet and demonstrates the important role NASA plays in contributing to the long-term understanding of Earth. By utilizing ground-based and space-based observation systems, we are able to better understand how humans are contributing to a changing world,” said John Grunsfeld, NASA”s associate administrator for science in Washington.

The app”s gallery includes satellite views as well as photos taken at ground level, NASA said, and users can view images side-by-side or overlay them using a slider bar to travel from past to present.
