@NASA_Langley atmospheric scientist Richard Eckman gives a hyperwall talk on ozone recovery @theAGU's 2018 Fall Meeting. He’s the first of several Langley speakers to present during the #AGU18 meeting, which runs through Friday.
Langley’s Patrick Taylor gives a hyperwall talk on the changing Arctic and its implications for humans at #AGU18.
One of the things we’re excited to talk about @theAGU Fall Meeting is TEMPO, a satellite instrument that will revolutionize the way we see air pollution over North America. Here's a look at our TEMPO @NASAExhibit at #AGU18. Learn more about TEMPO here: go.nasa.gov/2G2J8af

Exciting news from the legend that is Ed Stone from JPL. Voyager 2 has reached the heliopause - and stepped outside the solar system (if you use this definition). It crossed over on 5 Nov #AGU18
The position of the heliopause is currently moving outwards so it's possible it could catch up with Voyager 2 again, but for the moment the probe is exploring near interstellar space.
Voyager 2 is currently 119 astronomical unit from the Sun, ie 119 times the sun-earth distance. It's moving at about 60,000km/h

Once again climate scholars must waste time & resources trying to get their own house in order, calling on world's largest earth science org @theAGU to not...wait for it...award a Koch-funded climate denying politician a Presidential Citation. BRIEF THREAD ⬇️ 1/n #AGU18 #AGU2018
This comes two years after @theAGU repeatedly rejected calls from 54,000 citizens and 300 geoscientists to stop legitimizing Exxon through sponsorship ties, in direct violation of AGU's Organizational Support Policy and scientific integrity 2/n: documentcloud.org/documents/2803…
These nondecisions are systemic, reflecting long-standing institutional failings in science and higher education - at @theAGU, @MIT and beyond - to stand up to climate denial. As I wrote a while back, "scientific organizations must be braver" 3/n. huffingtonpost.com/geoffrey-supra…
