Quoted @ISS_Research

The @EarthKAM_Live has officially hit the 1 million mark!
The second payload to begin operating aboard the @Space_Station, more than 1 million students in 12,841 schools around the world have helped take pictures of Earth as a part of the EarthKAM program.

More than a half-million students around the world have participated in EarthKAM missions. Participants have created more than 94,000 images helping to tell the story of our changing Earth. 🌏 @DoNASAScience #CitizenScience
