PACE Space Mission

NASA recently launched the PACE mission, which aims to study microscopic marine life and atmospheric particles. PACE, which stands for Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, and Ecosystem, is a revolutionary satellite that will help scientists understand indicators of overall ocean health and global warming. The satellite is designed to remain in orbit for three years and will gather data on phytoplankton, cloud particles, and other “invisible” aspects of the universe to learn more about how the climate and oceans are changing. As pressures mount to tackle the climate crisis, NASA is launching a variety of climate-focused initiatives, including PACE, that will offer insights into how to protect the planet for future generations.
