Update for Satellites exhibit at the National Electronics Museum
There is significant new progress on the Satellites: Transforming Our Lives exhibit at the National Electronics Museum. See Satellites: Transforming Our Lives Exhibit to read Joe's report and view one of the concept drawings for the exhibit. Echostar-Hughes has just made a major new commitment of video display programmable boxes used in the Dish Network that will allow sophisticated programming on the video wall and Education and Multi-Media Center in the display area of the exhibit. The Satellite Industry Association has agreed to actively help our fund raising effort with particular support by Tom Stroup, the SIA's new President. We have a team of designers and script writers working on the final design that consists of Andrew Petitti, Philip Brady and Abigail Porter. We hope to have the new satellite display and outside upgrades to the Museum, including a 10' x 30' display sign along Nursery Road finished and in place by the Fall of 2015. We also will have a 60 page color brochure about the exhibit for students printed by the Summer of 2015. We wish to thank everyone that has helped make this effort a success. Contributions are still possible by going to the website for the National Electronics Museum.
