The Landsat Project Scientist, Jeff Masek, discussed NASA’s Earth Science Program with Bill Nye the Science Guy during Mr. Nye’s recent visit to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Dr. Masek presented and explained a sequence of Landsat images (projected on a hyperwall) that dramatically track deforestation and recovery in Washington State in the area surrounding Mt. St. Helens.. Mr. Nye was visiting NASA Goddard to learn about the James Webb Space Telescope, but during his visit he also had time to hear about Landsat and NASA Earth Science.
