In between recess, geography class and eating the lunch their moms packed, NASA scientists have found the time to help validate Earth-observing satellites. These scientists are the younger variety -- students in NASA's S'COOL project (Students' Cloud Observations On-Line), a worldwide effort to collect cloud observations from the ground. The students make observations like a NASA scientist and submit reports for their area to NASA. In return, the students receive a corresponding cloud...
