The "Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura is a NASA mission to study the Earth's ozone, air quality, and climate" by researching the composition, chemistry, and dynamics of the Earth's atmosphere. Visitors can learn how Aura is investigating three questions: Is the Earth's ozone layer recovering? Is air quality getting worse? How is Earth's climate changing? Researchers can find extensive details about the flight, spacecraft devices and specifications, and the data processing and validation. Visitors can view an array of Aura images from 2000 to the present. The website discusses how the Aura group is collaborating with the American Chemical Society, the GLOBE Program, and the National Museum of Natural History in order to expand formal and informal science education.
