During the Week
October 14-20 is Earth Science Week, an annual celebration established in 1998 by the American Geophysical Union to help children, students and the general public understand how geoscientists collection information about the planet, according a NASA website. NASA is planning a number of Internet-based events as well as a Univisión radio interview in Spanish on Tuesday with scientists Erika Podest and Miguel Romain. The list of NASA-sponsored events is on our calender. This year NASA is reaching out to the Spanish-speaking community not only with Tuesday's radio interview on Univisión, but a dedicated section of its Earth Science Week website in Spanish.
