NASA's Earth Science Enterprise, Destination: Earth, strives to better understand climate patterns in an effort to "predict and respond to environmental events - such as floods and severe winters - well in advance of their occurrence." At this site, space technology and its uses for understanding earth systems are described in the form of news stories, explanations, links to scores of science missions, striking Earth Science images, and a section for kids. A multimedia library contains a few sharply produced promotional videos [Quicktime]. The level of information at this site ranges from highly technical reports of science missions to entertaining videos and images.
