Sally Ride EarthKAM (Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle school students) is a NASA educational outreach program run by Sally Ride Science and founded by the late astronaut. It uses a digital camera mounted on a downward-facing window aboard the International Space Station.
Since its inception, the EarthKAM camera has captured over 93,000 images of the Earth. They are used to support classes in Earth science, space science, geography, social studies, mathematics, art, and communications. This collection of images can be accessed through the program’s online image gallery.
