#LPTakes5: see the world from a different angle

Join us tomorrow, Thursday 18 February, at 4pm GMT / 11am EST on Twitter for #LPTakes5!


This week we’re interviewing NASA Earth Observatory’s Adam Voiland (science writer) and Joshua Stevens (scientific visualization and cartographic quality lead). We’ll be discussing Adam’s alphabet project, the most beautiful places on earth as viewed from space, climate change, and how their work has inspired their travel.

The Earth Observatory’s mission is to share with the public the images, stories, and discoveries about the environment, Earth systems, and climate that emerge from NASA research. It’s a fascinating glimpse into life on our planet, with the kind of beauty and insight that can only be glimpsed from space. Follow them @NASAEarth to see the world like you never have before.

What is #LPTakes5 and how can I get involved?
