Jacob Schlosser, 14, rests on white sheets laid out in front of Lakeview Museum, where students from area schools were participating in the NASA-sponsored Albedo Project. Students here and at science centers around the world gathered to make 50x50-foot white spots on the ground so satellites could measure their reflectivity, or albedo. Scientists hope to use the technology to measure polar ice caps and icebergs to see how their reflectivity cools the earth.
