A View From Space - Available Beginning Spring 2016

Since the launch of the world's first artificial satellite Sputnik in 1957, satellites have dramatically changed the way we study our planet. A View from Space, a new, bilingual (Spanish and English) traveling exhibit from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, gives museum visitors a chance to see the world from a satellite's perspective. In this highly interactive, hands-on science exhibit, visitors will be able to track a hurricane from space, send a satellite spinning into orbit around a model Earth, study astonishing images of our planet captured by NASA's Earth Observing System, and more!
