Eos readers may have thought pretty highly of the original name for the flagship spacecraft for NASA's Earth Observing System. But a naming contest cosponsored by NASA and AGU found yet another very good name for “EOS AM-1.”
It will be known as “Terra,” thanks to the winning essay written by Sasha Jones, a 17-year-old senior at Brentwood High School in St. Louis, Missouri.
