Scientists at the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) have found a new way to measure what occurs inside plants at the cellular level by using satellites. Fluorescence, a light emitted by plants during photosynthesis, is invisible to the naked eye but detectable by satellites orbiting above Earth. NASA scientists have established a method to turn this satellite data into global maps with precise detail, which will give them a direct look at plant health.
