Space Station Live: NASA Partners With EPA for Ocean Study

HICO or Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean on the ISS is an ongoing experiment that uses a special camera that separates light into hundreds of wavelength channels, which reveals information about the composition of water and land along the coasts. Lori Meggs at the Marshall Space Flight Center's Payload Operations Integration Center tells us more about how the Environmental Protection Agency is working with NASA to use this information.

"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the street to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." - The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams 1952 - 2001
