A7: Sally Ride EarthKAM

Sally Ride EarthKAM is a NASA educational program that enables people to learn about Earth from the unique perspective of space.  The project was initiated by Dr. Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space. The EarthKAM camera was first operated on the International Space Station (ISS) on Expedition 1 in 2001. Sally Ride died in 2012, and in 2013, NASA renamed the program Sally Ride EarthKAM. The Sally Ride EarthKAM camera remains a permanent payload on the ISS, supporting about four missions annually. EarthKAM’s Mission 50 took place between November 10-13, and students around the world were able to request images of specific locations on Earth.

NASA has a familiar adage: Follow The Water, for where there is water, there is life.

MISSION 50 – 10-13 NOVEMBER  2015

Before starting the mission I have enrolled the school on the programme’s website, earthkam.org.  Initially the school was not accepted in Mission 50, but after an email to representants of Sally Ride EarthKAM we were welcomed, and we received 150 request codes for taking photos.

Teacher studied the programme’s handbook in order to guide students during the 50th Mission.

We have received some good photos from Sally Ride EarthKAM:

We made an simple exercise to compare the photos from Sally Ride EarthKAM with the maps from Google Maps.

 Together, students and teachers, we decided to prepare a tutorial for the next mission.

After the Mission 50 all participants received certificated of attendance:
