Model Of Satellite Displayed At Washington Pavilon

September 26, 2012, 9:27 PM


An event at the Washington Pavilion Wednesday night drew in scientists from around the world.

A model of the Landsat 7 satellite currently circling the earth is now on display at the Pavilion's Kirby Science Discovery Center. It takes pictures of earth's surface and sends them to places like the EROS data center near Sioux Falls.

Scientists from around the world were on-hand to commemorate the addition to the pavilion.

“It's very interesting to learn the new things and discuss it with the other international partners, and the community's growing all the time so that's very interesting,” Bianca Hoersch with European Space Agency said.

The pavilion partnership comes as EROS kicks off its 40th anniversary in South Dakota. This week's conference brings nearly 140 participants from 25 countries.
