Earth From Space
January 7th – February 28th
The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, in partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey, is providing a free poster version of the popular exhibition "Earth from Space". The 20-poster set features beautifully detailed satellite images of the planet—from the swirling arms of a massive hurricane and the grid-like pattern of Kansas farmland to the triangular shadows cast by the Great Pyramids and the sinuous channels entering the Arctic Ocean. “Earth from Space” illustrates how satellite imagery is gathered and used to expand mankind’s understanding of life on Earth. It also explores the remote-sensing technology used to gather the images and describes the individual satellites whose images are on display.
Additionally, the University of Michigan’s Department of Department of Aerospace Engineering has loaned us the CYGNSS, Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System, display created by NASA.
