NASA has launched an #EarthDayAtHome campaign to help the public celebrate the Earth Day’s 50th anniversary around the world celebrated the first Earth Day (April 22, 1970).
I was one of the lucky ones having the opportunity working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). NASA GSFC has combined a variety of educational resources into a 50th anniversary toolkit, which is designed to get conservation messages across to young people — and the rest of us as well with various planned activities specifically to raise environmental awareness movement.
“Amid the recent outbreak, we encourage people to rise up but to do so safely and responsibly – in many cases, that means sing our voices to drive action online rather than in person,” Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network, said in a news release.
A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite caught this view of Africa and the entire sunlit side of Earth on July 9, 2015. NASA released the image July 29.
