NASA Earth Day Video Contest 2012
No longer being offered.
Perhaps your friends are always complaining that you have your head in the clouds, or you can’t put down that video camera. Well, maybe you should be entering the NASA Earth Day Video Contest 2012.
NASA has changed how we think about exploring Earth and even how we see Earth. So, to mark Earth Day 2012, they are inviting you to create your own video vision of NASA's exploration of Earth -- The Home Frontier.
The winner will receive behind-the-scenes access to the next rocket launch of a NASA Earth-observing satellite. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM), a joint project of NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in January 2013.
