Host Kelee Riesbeck talks with Michael Starobin, director and writer of Science on a Sphere, a film that is part of the NASA-Goddard's Space Flight Center.

Science on a Sphere is a series of films that are actually projected onto a massive sphere screen, giving the illusion of being a planet. It is unlike any other presentation of films, and can only be found in certain locations.

This new film, called Waterfalls, covers a planned mission between NASA and Japan's Space Exploration Agency, which will further teach us about the measurement of global precipitation.

The Global Precipitation Measurement (G.P.M.) mission aims to study mainly freshwater measurements on Earth, since it is such a life sustaining element, as well a helpful product in every day technology.
