The Global Precipitation Measurement mission (GPM) is a massive, multinational mission utilizing a fleet of spacecraft, sophisticated ground based data processing systems, and years of planning. To capture the essence of this immense undertaking and introduce it to broad audiences, NASA's GPM project office decided to do something out of the box. WATER FALLS is the result. Designed specifically for spherical screens, WATER FALLS abstracts the complex mechanics of the GPM mission, and explores the diversity of phenomena inherent to the water cycle. Presented in sensual, evocative, even surprising ways, WATER FALLS offers vital information about GPM's profound importance to everyone who lives on Earth.
