Facebook is Money Motivated... GLOBE is Making Changes
Now that Facebook is a publicly traded company, it requires GLOBE (and all other non-profits, companies, etc.) to pay to promote status updates. While the "pay-to-play" model goes against the very fabric of what Facebook was founded on, the new reality means that people––like you––who have already "liked" our Facebook page, may no longer see our posts unless GLOBE pays Facebook to promote each post.  >>

Storybook Time with Students
Each October, NASA joins forces with the American Geological Institute and their partners for Earth Science Week (ESW). It's a chance to give people of all ages the opportunity to explore the natural world and learn about the geosciences. NASA Langley researchers and staff celebrated this year's ESW, from October 14 to 20, in the local community through a storybook event. They visited about 50 Kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms in Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and York County this week to read stories about the Earth and talk to the children about how NASA studies our home planet. Volunteers gave a copy of the book to each teacher along with a folder of NASA Langley Science Directorate education resources and ESW packets.
