Dr. George R. Carruthers (1939 - 2020) was a visionary scientist, inventor, engineer and educator. On Dec. 2, he became the namesake of a new NASA mission. The Carruthers Geocorona Observatory will observe Earth from space. The mission will capture light from Earth’s geocorona, the part of the outer atmosphere that emits ultraviolet light and will be ready to launch in 2025.
