Fire. It’s one of the things that makes Earth so unusual. This season has been one of extremes, with large fires burning from the tropical rainforest to north of the Arctic circle. NASA Explorers have been there every step of the way, investigating the fires as they burn and tracking their effects down the line. From satellites, airplanes, on the ground and in the lab, NASA Explorers are working to understand our home planet and how it burns.
Join us this October as we take a closer look at fire and the people who study it.
