Hello Crud
This segment provides an introduction to aerosols: their varied sources, brief lifetimes and erratic behavior. Glory's APS will help researchers determine the global distribution of aerosol particles. This unique instrument will unravel the microphysical properties of aerosols, and will shed light on the chemical composition of natural and anthropogenic aerosols and clouds.
The Particle Puzzle
This video explores the complexity of atmospheric aerosols: how they impact climate and how researchers study them. Glory's Aerosol Polarimetry Sensor and Cloud Camera will provide an unprecedented data set for helping scientists understand aerosol particles.
The Road to Glory
This video provides an overview on Glory, introducing Glory's instruments and science objectives, and the people who work the mission.
The Rough Road to Space
Space is a harsh environment, and building a space-bound satellite is no small feat! Here's a look at how NASA engineers get the Glory mission off the ground and safely into space.
Glory's Suncatcher
The sun's energy is one of the biggest forces acting on Earth's climate, and for years satellites have studied it. Glory will continue collection of this critical climate data, which will contribute to the long-term climate record. The cutting edge TIM instrument will continue the work of NASA's SORCE mission.
The Cloud Makers
This segment provides an introduction to aerosols: their varied sources, brief lifetimes and erratic behavior. Glory's APS will help researchers determine the global distribution of aerosol particles. This unique instrument will unravel the microphysical properties of aerosols, and will shed light on the chemical composition of natural and anthropogenic aerosols and clouds.
Glory Cleanroom B-roll, Orbital Sciences Corporation
In the lead up to launch, a number of critical spacecraft building and testing milestones took place at Orbital Sciences Corporation in Dulles, Virginia. This video b-roll was filmed in cleanrooms at Orbital Sciences Corporation, and provides documentation of critical Glory milestone moments.
