NASA | Who Is NPPy?
The main character in the 'Big Planet, Little Bear' video series represents the NPP mission mascot who happens to be a little stuffed polar bear, named NPPy. NPPy was found by the NPP Ground Project Manager Dan DeVito in a place called Svalbard, located 600 miles from the North Pole. Since then, Dan and other people on the NPP project have taken NPPy along when they travel to different locations involved in the mission. So the little stuffed bear NPPy has travelled to every continent and learned a lot about how important the NPP mission is to life on Earth. Watch this video to learn more about NPPy and find out why he has so many pins on his vest. This video is public domain and can be downloaded at: ?http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?10789 Like our videos?
