Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Most people think of NASA as putting rockets into space and exploring our galaxy but the space agency does a lot of work studying Earth. And what they're learning has scientists concerned--especially about our water supply.

Sitting in a place they call the "mall" in the center of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory campus in Pasadena, California, it's shady and relaxing. Scientists confab at tables with umbrellas, sipping coffee, laptops open to graphs and charts. That's where H2O Radio's Frani Halperin met Jay Famiglietti, senior water scientist, to talk about NASA's latest missions. The space agency isn't just sending rockets to explore our galaxy "they're launching satellites to look back at Earth. Missions with names like "GRACE" are "amazing" "not just for their bird's-eye view of our home planet but for what that perspective is telling us about our challenging water future.  
Jay Famiglietti, senior water scientist, NASA
