As the first of six episodes, Science for a Hungry World: Part 1 sets the groundwork for explaining why NASA data is critical to ensure a stable global food system. This video reveals how satellite remote sensing data provide the world with essential information like the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, or NDVI, which allows scientists and governments to see the health of crops on a global scale. This video reinforces the idea that a unique perspective from space is essential for continuous global agricultural monitoring and accurate forecasting.    As the first of six episodes, Science for a Hungry World: Part 1 sets the groundwork for explaining why NASA data is critical to ensure a stable global food system.
