PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In support of educating the public about the mission and ASU’s lead role in it, the School of Earth and Space Exploration is building a high-fidelity, full-scale model of the Psyche spacecraft that will hang from the ceiling of the ISTB-4 building. Approximately 10,000 K-12 students visit the building each year, as well as many thousands of other members of the public. To help them learn about the Psyche spacecraft and mission, a remote system is needed that will highlight the important elements of the spacecraft model (such as lighting up a specific instrument) and sharing information about it down below (on something like a tablet or other display device).
