Weather affects life and assets not only on Earth, but in space as well, on other planets in our solar system and in other stellar systems. How do we observe weather, track it locally or globally, and eventually predict extreme weather events? Hear NASA specialists who combine their science expertise and imagination to take you on a journey through the solar system and beyond.  Learn about the science and technology of satellite observations, and how you may access some of the visuals and stories. You may even download mobile apps that allow you to contribute to earth and space weather studies.
