“Space to spoon” exhibition unveiled

A new travelling exhibition designed by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum will be stopping across the county until 2020. The exhibit, titled “Space to Spoon” will use videos and interactive experiences so visitors see how farmers use satellites, like the data from RADARSAT-2, which offers precision ground monitoring. Farmers can use this satellite's data to improve risk management and crop quality. Visitors will also learn how this data supports the development of sustainable agriculture practices and what impact they have on the food we eat.

Next year, the CSA will launch the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, which will improve data quality and availability. This constellation of satellites will have a significant advantage over its predecessor, making it possible to monitor Canada's entire landmass on a daily basis.

The exhibition will first be available at Resurgo Place (Moncton, N.B.) until May 21, 2017.
