Astronaut imagery can be a powerful classroom tool helping to inspire and motivate students to conduct research in the classroom. To help model the process of science that professional researchers use, students can use the images available on the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website and they can submit an Online Data Request Form to have astronaut photography acquired in support of their classroom investigations.
Student Investigation requests will be reviewed by the CEO science team, with approval notice provided within two weeks of submission. Once acquired, electronic copies of images will be sent to the teacher. Image acquisition and turn around time varies.
Image requests should support a project or investigation and must be officially submitted using the Online Data Request Form.
