Description:
ISS EarthKAM (previously known as simply EarthKAM, and KidSat) is a NASA sponsored program started in 1996 that allows middle school students to request high-quality photographs of their planet taken from the Space Shuttle and International Space Station. Since its creation, thousands of photographs of Earth have been taken by digital cameras on select space flights and the International Space Station. The digitized images are transmitted from orbit via a TDRSS K<sub>u</sub> band satellite link to Johnson Space Center Mission Control.

Sally Ride has contributed greatly to the operations of the project. It is run as a cooperation between University of California, San Diego and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
