Located on the first
floor of the National Air And Space Museum in Gallery 110, "Looking At Earth"
shows visitors how views of our planet from above have helped us to better
understand the Earth. Examples of satellite imagery and aerial photography
display how remote sensing is used for urban planning, geology, archaeology,
military reconnaissance, environmental monitoring and natural disaster assessment.
From the first aerial photos taken from balloons to images taken from space,
looking at the Earth from above provides a unique and beautiful view of
the natural and human induced changes that occur on our planet.
