Did you know that every time you take a breath, it’s nearly certain that you’ll inhale tens of millions of solid particles and liquid droplets? These tiny particles, called aerosols, can have a huge impact on Earth’s climate, and community health. Explore the suite of resources to help your students learn about how researchers and communities alike use data to understand impacts of air quality at a global and local level.
What is a Human Factors Engineer?
Astronauts come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and it's up to human factors engineers like Sarosh Nandwani to make sure everyday tasks in space are manageable for each of them. These engineers make sure things like tools can accommodate different hand sizes, equipment can be used by people of varying heights, and toilets can be used by any bottom.
