The EIC allows visitors to see how the planet is changing in ways that affect their lives through large, awe-inspiring visualizations, interactive media, and narratives designed to educate and motivate. The EIC is open from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday. For more information about the Earth Information Center, visit https://go.nasa.gov/eic

SESDA personnel collaborated with science visualizers, artists, scientists, audio visual engineers, architects, construction workers, and craftspeople, providing systems engineering, networking, and logistical support during the creation of the NASA Headquarters Earth Information Center. SESDA personnel continue to support the day-to-day operation and maintenance of the EIC and provide docent services to Center visitors.
