The World of Satellites - MSU Wonderlust talk at Livingston Library

- Livingston Park County Library, 228 W. Callender Street
MSU Wonderlust offers a public presentation at the Livingston Park County Library called "Over Our Heads: Introduction to the World of Satellites."
The talk is from 6pm to 8pm and is free, but pre-registration is requested.
John Elwell, a long-time space researcher, will explore many intriguing aspects of satellites. For instance, how can the GPS receiver in our phones and cars tell us where we are, anytime, anywhere? Which satellites are taking pictures of our homes from outer space? And can spy satellites really help us keep watch over bad guys?
Elwell spent his career in the space business, building instruments and managing programs for space research at the Space Dynamics Laboratory at Utah State University. He worked on many different missions that studied the Earth, our solar system and the universe. He holds electrical engineering degrees from the University of Utah and Utah State.
