Storybus Tours: Close Encounters at NASA JPL

Check out our edited video report on the Storybus Tour that explored the NASA-JPL facility in Pasadena on Oct. 25, 2012, when Hollywood, Health & Society Director Sandra de Castro Buffington led a group of writers and producers on an exclusive look at how climate change is affecting the planet and people’s lives.

The group met with engineers, scientists and visual artists—who discussed everything from the impact of global warming on forest ecosystems to new sources of sustainable energy—and saw in real-time how an armada of NASA satellites keep track of Earth’s vital signs.

The trip offered writers and producers a chance to be inspired and informed when it comes to crafting realistic, compelling drama about one of the most vital issues facing our planet today.
