NASA develops, deploys and manages an array of satellites that monitor and measure energy as it flows into, through and out of the Earth system. During Earth Science Week, a series of short videos will be posted to The videos will contain short experiments related to energy, such as the energy that fuels hurricanes. Educators may use the videos in their classrooms.
