Wednesday night's episode of Nova, Earth From Space, was simply outstanding. It dealt with the incredible information being learned about the Earth's geology, weather, climate, and biosphere from satellites.
I agree 100% and recommend it to all. Some amazing insights were shown using satellites from space about the earth. I was really surprised by the Antarctica piece.
peace & clear skies

The text/narration dwelt too much on the sensational. I thought most of the Katrina footage was superfluous, and did not add to any understanding of the subject.
The graphics and explanation of the electromagnetic spectrum were not well done. Someone who didn't already know about infrared, ultraviolet, microwaves would not gain any understanding from the short explanation. The analogy of comparing the entire electromagnetic spectrum to the distance between LA and NY was weak.
In summary, I thought the program was not well made. As a space nut, I totally enjoyed it, but I do not think the layperson would gain much understanding from it.
