Instrumentation as Eyes: How We See Earth from Space

October 14, 2015 | 12:00pm - 12:15pm
Museum in Washington, DC

Orbiting our planet are hundreds of satellites that provide information to Earth that the general global population use every day. The images these satellites produce are used for a variety of purposes, like weather forecasting. Join National Air and Space Museum fellow Brian Jirout as he explains what you’re looking at when you watch a weather forecast on TV and where that information comes from.

Meet at the Museum "Great Seal", in the Boeing Milestones of Flight Hall on the first floor.

About the Ask an Expert lecture series: Every Wednesday at noon in the National Mall Building, a Museum staff member talks to the public about the history, collection, or personalities related to a specific artifact or exhibition in the Museum.
