Artist's Concept of Glory Satellite

Caption: Glory, shown in this artist's concept, will study the roles of two critical elements of Earth's climate system: the sun's total solar irradiance and atmospheric airborne particles called aerosols. Both have significant direct and indirect effects on Earth's climate, and the two instruments on Glory will provide new insights into these complex processes.
