Description: (Adapted from Public Connection home page)

We have created the "Public Connection" in collaboration with
the Houston Museum of Natural Science (HMNS), by developing
interactive real-time displays of real-time earth and space science
data. The "Space Update" software has now been fully field-tested by
over 800,000 visitors and is available for purchase for display at
museums and schools! The all-new "Earth Update" software is also ready
for sale. This project was initially funded by NASA/Goddard's Digital
Library Technology Project and is now part of the Learning
Technologies Program. "Earth Update" is funded by NASA's Office of
Earth Science. Our logo, a 6-pointed star, is created from
interlocking triangles. The silver triangle symbolizes observing space
from the Earth (the bottom point is man with two upward arms reaching
to the solar system on the left and the galaxy and beyond on the
right). The blue triangle symbolizes observing Earth from space (the
top point is a spacecraft viewing down to observe the curved Earth
below). The former symbolizes our "Space Update" software - the
second, our "Earth Update" software.
