Information
     "Earth Hour" first ascends into space. Astronauts will take pictures of the earth with lights out. News from this newspaper (Reporter Xu Qimin) The "Earth Hour" campaign initiated by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) will land in space for the first time this year. On March 31st, "Earth Hour" promotion ambassador and Dutch astronaut Andrew Coopers will take photos of the Earth turned off from the International Space Station, and will release relevant photos and on-site comments through the European Space Agency.
    "EarthHour" is an initiative of WWF to respond to global climate change. It is hoped that individuals, communities, businesses and governments will turn off the lights for one hour from 20:30-21:30 on the last Saturday of March each year. Stimulate people's sense of responsibility for protecting the earth, as well as thinking about environmental issues such as climate change, and show their support for the global fight against climate warming. After this global event was first initiated in Sydney in 2007, it has swept the world at an astonishing speed and has now become the world's largest sustainable development initiative. As of last year, about 4,000 cities around the world have joined, including 86 from China. This year, Shijiazhuang became the first city in China to formally join the “Earth Hour” and make environmental protection commitments. It promised that the annual average concentration of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and inhalable particulate matter in the urban area will reach the secondary standard in 2012, which will significantly improve air quality.
   This year, WWF extended this activity to the International Space Station. In previous years, the night view of the city around 1 hour after turning off the lights gave people a considerable shock. As the number of participating cities continues to increase, this time WWF will try to take photos of the "lights-out earth" in space. Astronaut Coopers said excitedly: "To act in the vast universe for the future of a beautiful earth, this is an excellent way to raise public awareness of environmental protection!"
