North Lake Tahoe Bonanza: Visit the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences on the Sierra Nevada College campus for the last chance to check out the "A View From Space" exhibit. Saturday, Sept. 8 is the last day for this interactive exhibit to be available in the Lake Tahoe region. Doors will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Since the launch of the world’s first artificial satellite, Sputnik, in 1957, satellites have dramatically changed the way we study our planet. A View from Space, a bilingual (Spanish and English), highly interactive, hands-on science exhibit, will allow visitors to see the world from a satellite’s perspective. Visitors can track a hurricane from space, send a satellite spinning into orbit around a model Earth, study incredible images of our planet captured by NASA’s Earth Observing System, and more.
