What is the IPY?
  • The International Polar Year (IPY) is a two-year
    event that focuses science and education on
    Earth's remote polar regions. IPY, which starts
    March 1, 2007, was established by the
    International Council for Science and the World
    Meteorological Organization to recognize the
    125th anniversary of the first polar year and the
    50th anniversary of the International Geophysical
    Year.

NASA IPY
  • IPY marks the beginning of a sustained effort to
    understand large-scale environmental change in
    Earth's polar regions, which have major societal
    and economic impacts, and to advance new
    scientific frontiers, from the molecular to the
    planetary scale. NASA brings a unique perspective
    to IPY, which will focus on five themes

NASAs Five Themes for IPY
  • NASA explores scientific frontiers in Earth's
    polar regions.
  • NASAs long-term measurements of Earth's poles
  • NASA creates cutting-edge technologies for
    exploring the poles
  • NASA's investment in exploring Earth's poles has
    built the foundation for a new era of scientific
    exploration at Mars polar regions,
  • NASA's mission to extend human exploration into
    the solar system begins with creating a base in
    the polar regions of the moon.

Life on Earth
  • NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and
    ILC Dover of Frederica, Del., tested out such a
    module on a January 2008 excursion to Antarctica,
    one of Earth's harshest environments.
