A nearly-instant portrait of Earth is projected on a 10-foot screen from information received from orbiting satellites and global monitoring networks. An accompanying 7-minute program narrated by James Earl Jones describes the Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere. Additional programs present data collected daily by NASA, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the Navy, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
