Al Gore's Satellite

Hosted by

There's a new satellite in orbit that will help measure climate change. Al Gore is credited with dreaming it up — he literally had a dream about a satellite that would send back pictures of the earth. Now we have the first images from what's been dubbed "GoreSat." They're the first photos of the entire planet since American astronauts took the famous "Blue Marble" picture, way back in 1972.
