It Is Rocket Science
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) became the 13th Cabinet agency to join the National Invasive Species Council (NISC).
NASA has agreed to make its satellite observations of the Earth, computer modeling and engineering experience available to NISC.
“Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to our environment and wildlife,” said Interior secretary Gale Norton in a recent statement. “With NASA on board, the council will be able to attack this ecological crisis with new technologies and tools.”
