New VA Aquarium Exhibit on NASA Studying Climate Change

A new exhibit at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center shows visitors how NASA is studying climate change factors through research on phytoplankton.

Marine phytoplankton helps regulate carbon dioxide, one of the key factors in Earth's temperatures.

The new traveling exhibit consists of five large light boxes, two six-foot banners and NASA visualizations shown on a 55-inch flat screen television.

The exhibit is funded through the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Internal Research and Development Program educational component, and will be on display at the aquarium through the summer.
