Glory is a unique research satellite designed to orbit the Earth and achieve two major goals.  Glory's first goal is to collect data on the properties of aerosols and black carbon in the Earth's atmosphere and climate system; its second goal is to collect data on solar irradiance for Earth's long-term climate record.  This seven-minute video introduces Glory's science objectives, people, and instruments, and provides an overview of the Glory mission.    Glory is a unique research satellite designed to orbit the Earth and achieve two major goals.
