This project is solving the Earth Day Challenge challenge.
At the time of the first Earth Day in 1970, America’s city skies were darkened by air pollution and rivers were catching on fire. The Potomac River in Washington, D.C. smelled like a raw sewer. Pictures of Earth from space were very new, and it was almost impossible to acquire and use data from space unless you were a space scientist. Today, we have seen major environmental improvements and spectacular advances in information technology, but we continue to face major challenges.
