NASA eClips™ Releases New Ask SME Video Resources featuring NASA Harvest Subject Matter Experts and Astrobiologist Dr. Danny Glavin
NASA eClips collaborated with NASA Harvest to create educational resources focusing on agriculture. Among these new resources are three new Ask SME videos highlighting NASA Harvest scientists who use Earth-observing satellite data to monitor the relationship between the Earth systems and the health of the crops. The information is used to help strengthen global food security and support market stability.
In Ask SME: Close-up with a NASA Subject Matter Expert “Dr. Inbar Becker-Reshef – Program Director,” Dr. Becker-Reshef describes her journey and how her travels as a child helped her choose a career in science over her passion for art. She shares how cameras on satellites provide data to help farmers and agricultural leaders grow more food and work toward food security worldwide.
In Ask SME: Close-up with a NASA Subject Matter Expert “Dr. Hannah Kerner - Artificial Intelligence Lead,” Dr. Kerner shares her experiences in writing code and developing machine learning algorithms that enable NASA satellites to monitor where food is grown. She describes how her hobbies of hiking, scuba diving, and volunteering intersect with her work.
In Ask SME: Close-up with a NASA Subject Matter Expert “Dr. Catherine Nakalembe – Remote Sensing Scientist,” Dr. Nakalembe shares her passion for helping farmers worldwide using NASA satellites to monitor crops from space to increase sustainability. She also describes how her love for hiking, photography, and travel supports her work.
Separately, Ask SME: Close-up with a NASA Subject Matter Expert “Dr. Danny Glavin – Astrobiologist,” was released. This video is an opportunity for viewers to "meet" Dr. Glavin from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. This video provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of his interests and NASA career journey. He shares his travel experiences to help students visualize places where people in STEM careers work and how communication is an essential part of his job.
