GOLD Science Communications Webinars are virtual gatherings of GOLD team members involved in bringing the science and engineering of the mission to the public. The purpose of the webinars is to offer a unique perspective on the mission to those interested in GOLD and NASA heliophysics science generally, so that we can keep the public updated on the latest data from GOLD, as well as the science related to NASA’s exploration of the near-Earth space environment.
By sharing information, resources, and experiences, participants in these virtual gatherings will be connected to the mission in a unique way and take part in this valuable opportunity to engage with the mission and with each other.
GOLD Science Communications Webinars
August 1, 2018—Solar Storms in the Ionosphere and the NASA GOLD Mission
Presenter: GOLD science co-investigator, Stan Solomon
Date: Wed., August 1, 2018 at 1:00 PM Pacific (4 PM ET)
Phone: 1 (646) 558-8656 or 1 (669) 900-6833; Meeting ID: 422 303 3278
The GOLD mission has reached geostationary orbit and will soon begin capturing unprecedented images of Earth’s interface to space.
Join GOLD scientist Stan Solomon to learn how the GOLD instrument—an ultraviolet imaging spectrograph—will measure the response of the Earth’s upper atmosphere to changes in solar activity.
March 21, 2018—GOLD: Hitching a Ride on a Commercial Communications Satellite
Presenter: GOLD Project Manager, Rory Barrett
Download the presentation:
The NASA GOLD mission launched successfully on Jan. 25, 2018, and is making its way into geostationary orbit, some 22,000 miles above the Earth.
Join GOLD Project Manager, Rory Barrett, to learn about how the GOLD instrument—an ultraviolet imaging spectrograph—will capture unprecedented images of Earth’s interface to space as a hosted payload onboard SES-14, a commercial communications satellite.

February 28, 2018—Unprecedented Imaging of Earth’s Space Environment from Geostationary Orbit
Presenter: GOLD Principal Investigator, Richard Eastes
Download the presentation:
NASA’s Global Scale Observations of the Limb and Disk, or GOLD, mission launched successfully on January 25, 2018, as a hosted payload on SES-14, a commercial communications satellite that will operate in geostationary orbit.
In this GOLD Science Communications Webinar from February 28, 2018, GOLD Principal Investigator, Richard Eastes, discusses how the GOLD instrument—an ultraviolet imaging spectrograph—will capture unprecedented images of the Earth and provide valuable insight into how the near-space environment responds to inputs from the Sun above and the lower atmosphere below.
