On Saturday, September 26, over 20,000 people attended an all-day public open house at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The “Explore@Goddard” event shared with the public some of the science and technology that is developed and used on the Goddard campus everyday. Talks and exhibits entertained, educated, and engaged visitors of all ages.
The Landsat exhibit booth shared how Landsat helps us to understand our changing lands. The Landsat Communications and Public Engagement staff together with with Sr. Systems Engineer Theresa Arvidson (Lockheed Martin) and Sally Cook (USGS) helped visitors explore Landsat mosaics of the Chesapeake Bay watershed and large cubes that featured images of the same places during different decades. The crowd of visitors included many family groups.
