AIAA celebrates Earth Day and salutes the role that the aerospace industry plays in protecting our fragile planet. AIAA Executive Director Sandra H. Magnus said, “Because of the advances in aerospace science and technology we continue to monitor and expand our knowledge of the planet. Earth observing satellites allow us a greater understanding of the Earth’s land and ocean spaces—and provide critical insight into weather patterns and the plight of wildlife; farmers use GPS technology to better manage their crops; and public safety officials rely on critical technology to keep millions of people safe in the face of impending natural disasters. All of these amazing advances that improve life on our planet happened because of the hard work of aerospace professionals.” (Image Credit: NASA)
