Ok, I am going to go ahead and admit something. I was a research meteorologist for 12 years at NASA Goddard Space Center and served as Deputy Project Scientist for the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission. I currently chair NASA's Earth Science Advisory Committee. I know quite a bit about NASA's Earth Science activities and capabilities. I had no idea that satellites could detect penguin "poop," and I am willing to bet that you didn't either. Not only is NASA tracking penguin poop, it is important for understanding the health of the Adélie penguin population and their environment.
