Leonardo DiCaprio visits NASA Goddard to discuss Earth science with Piers Sellers
Academy Award winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio visited NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., on Saturday, April 23, 2016. During his visit, Mr. DiCaprio interviewed Dr. Piers Sellers, an Earth scientist, former astronaut and current deputy director of Goddard's Sciences and Exploration Directorate. The two discussed the different missions NASA has underway to study changes in the Earth's atmosphere, water and land masses for a climate change documentary that Mr. DiCaprio has in production. Using a wall-size, high-definition display system that shows visual representations based on actual science data, Mr. DiCaprio and Dr. Sellers discussed data results from NASA's fleet of satellites in Earth's orbit. During his visit, Mr. DiCaprio also visited the facility holding NASA's James Webb Space Telescope that is being developed as a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror.
