NASA Digital Learning Network celebrated Earth Day and joined musician/artist Kenji Williams for a special performance of "Bella Gaia" (Beautiful Earth) on Monday, April 19, 2010. "Bella Gaia" is a "living atlas" multimedia journey of our planet and combines stunning perspectives of Earth from space with Williams' original and eclectic score. UMBC cryospheric scientist Christopher Shuman joined Williams on Earth Day to give a first-hand look at a changing Antarctica. Shuman discussed what it is like to work in such a difficult and rewarding place as Antarctica and showed how the glacial poles affect our entire Earth and climate system.
