RADI Kicks off Public Science Day
 Date: 2013-05-23  Page Views:

RADI held its first Public Science Day on May 18, 2013. It was attended by more than 100 science lovers from all walks of life, including students from universities and research institutes.

Under the theme of “Science and Technology Lead the Future”, the event had colorful activities, including science lectures, films, and exhibits. Three RADI researchers were invited to give talks on the role of remote sensing in earthquake disaster relief, space-borne observation of foggy and hazy weather, and space technology and world heritage. Using large numbers of remote sensing images, the reporters showed, in an easy-to-understand way, the important role of remote sensing technology in addressing urgent challenges facing human beings.

The visitors watched 3-D films produced by the CAS Key Laboratory of Digital Earth about the science platform of Digital Earth and space-borne observation of world heritage. To help them understand the acquisition and distribution of satellite data, the science fans were also shown a real-time receiving and broadcasting system for satellite data, typical airborne and space-borne remote sensing images, and the operation and management system of RADI’s Satellite Remote Sensing Center.

RADI has a solid foundation and favorable facilities for science popularization. This public science day was the institute’s first attempt in this regard after its establishment.
