Actor Jaden Smith Stars in a New NASA PSA

Jaden Smith, star of Columbia Pictures’ movie “After Earth,” is featured in a new NASA public service announcement (PSA) that describes the contributions of the agency’s Earth science program to environmental awareness and exploration of the home planet.

The PSA features imagery from “After Earth” as well as animations of Earth data from 17 orbiting NASA satellites.

The satellites are making cutting-edge observations of the entire Earth system, including the atmosphere, oceans, land surface, and snow and ice.

The observations are used by scientists worldwide to improve the understanding of our complex planet, better predict the future of our changing climate, and enhance life on Earth today.

“NASA has a fleet of satellites around the planet that keeps track of climate change and studies how humans are affecting the planet,” Smith says in the PSA. “At NASA right now, scientists and engineers are working every day to help humans learn how to better care for their home so that we never have to leave.”

NASA Television will broadcast the announcement beginning Thursday, May 30. It is available to television and radio stations and other interested media outlets.
