Space to Spoon launches at the National Air Force Museum of Canada
Trenton, ON. February 8th. The National Air Force Museum of Canada is excited to announce a new exhibition on loan from the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum and the Canadian Space Agency: Space to Spoon.
Space to Spoon demonstrates how space technology benefits Canadian farmers and sustainable agriculture. It also highlights the Canadian Space Agency’s Earth observation satellite, RADARSAT-2, and its cutting-edge successor, RADARSAT Constellation.
Space to Spoon is a hands-on experience, with stunning graphics and interactive elements for visitors of all ages. The science, technology, and innovation that transform satellite images into agricultural applications are showcased in a way that encourages informal science learning among school groups as well as general audiences.
In addition to the modules that make up the Space to Spoon exhibit, the National Air Force Museum has secured several other artifacts on loan, including an INMARSAT Sera Saturn B Satellite Phone from the 1990s and Col. Chris Hadfield’s uniform, to connect to the RCAF’s role in space
