PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

Remote sensing has become one of the most powerful tools we have for the exploring Earth and the other worlds on our solar system. LiftOff '97 will feature some of the techniques scientists use to carry out remote observations, and we will have some fun with the electromagnetic spectrum along the way. Teachers will learn about ongoing programs that bring real remote sensing science into the classroom.
