After Christmas Activity at Sci Tech Discovery Center



The perfect idea for a little educational fun after the excitement of Christmas day has ended, is to visit Frisco’s Sci Tech Discovery Center. Lou Adams, an Astro Aerospace Corp. deployment analyst will be speaking and giving a presentation on SMAP at the Discovery Center on Tuesday, December 27, at 4:00 pm [Ed Note: Time changed from 2pm to 4pm].

SMAP stands for Soil Moisture Active Passive, which has originated from NASA. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, JPL, has been assigned responsibility to oversee the success of this project.

This project is the first of its kind for soil-moisture monitoring through observations taken from space, as at this time we have none. Lou’s team at Astro Aerospace is responsible for the reflector seen in this picture.

Lou states, “SMAP has the potential to enable a diverse range of applications including drought and flood guidance, agricultural productivity estimation, weather forecasting, climate prediction, and human health.”

Please come out to learn how SMAP will help our nation and world in understanding our earth’s soil moisture. As we all are acutely aware of the drought that Texas and other states has suffered, there is no better time to help educate ourselves on this extremely important subject.

We look forward to seeing you, your family and friends.  Pass this along to any of your science-minded friends, kids and teens. This is the absolute in cutting edge in space technology.

The entrance fee into the Sci Tech Discovery Center still applies, and will cover Lou’s presentation too.As a side note, I am proud to say that Lou Adams is my stepdad! His grandkids cannot wait to see Grandpa Lou in action, talking about space to their friends!
