Particle for Scale was completed with the women of NASA’s Atmospheric Tomography Mission (AToM), a collaborative mission led by Harvard University to examine how human-produced air pollution affects greenhouse gasses and other chemically reactive particles in the atmosphere. Consisting of four sets of flights taking place during different seasons over the span of two years, each set is a 26-day journey aboard a flying laboratory that circumnavigates the globe on multiple axes. In April 2018, Springer interviewed and photographed eight women aboard the final deployment over the Arctic before they continued around the world.
