Satellite art

A lecturer in radar and telecommunications has taken the science of satellite imagery and created an artistic exhibition. Dr Chris Lavers, based at the Britannia Royal Naval College, unveiled a gallery of images at the Flavel Centre in Dartmouth. Chris, who has worked on a number of Institute of Physics-funded public engagement projects in the past, said: 

“Satellite imagery provides an amazing window into the diverse landforms, flora and fauna, and natural processes of the creation around us. Many natural processes have left their mark on the earth, adding to the rich tapestry that makes up the world we see around us, from flooding, earthquakes and volcanic activity, to space impacts, which have no respect for temporary earthbound geo-political boundaries.”
