NASA uses data from satellites and other instruments to understand our home planet Earth, investigating weather, climate, and air quality. One example is MISR, the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer. This unique instrument has cameras (imagers) looking away from the satellite, and down to Earth, from 9 different angles. MISR was launched on the Terra satellite in 1999.
