John Bosworth (guessing the spelling from the katakana), a scientist with the Geophysics Institute of the Goddard Sapce Center, will be speaking on the subject of the importance of role of Japan in satelite-based observations of the earth. His talk will be part of the Survey and Map Festival of the Geographical Survey Institute just west of Tsukuba University to be held on June 6 and 7. It is at this time that the recently constructed Very Long Base Interferometer Antenna goes on line and begins its measurements.
There will be a number of special displays and events, including a paper airplane contest at 11 am and 2 pm both days. For the kids, there will be a drawing each day with 100 winners getting photo seals made up of pictures of themselves with a monster.
