Join Director and Musician Kenji Williams as he takes the Internet audience on a tour of the Earth from Space with his BELLA GAIA (www.bellagaia.com) multimedia show and interactive discussions with NASA Earth Scientist Thorsten Markus and Native American science educator Jim Rock. The show simulates spaceflight for the public and reminds us of the beauty and inter-connectedness of Earth's life systems. The program will emphasize Earth's Water in all of its forms: Liquid, Solid, and Vapor, from the Western scientific, Indigenous, Artistic, and Multi-cultural points of view. The event provides a real-time Internet link-up where students and teachers from schools across the country can interact live with the program.
