The halls of Sul Ross Rio Grande College rang with enthusiasm as Girl Scout Troop 78 visited the Uvalde campus to explore the “Earth from Space” poster exhibit.

Eleven Scouts, some of their siblings, and nine adults toured the display, examining the satellite photography and discussing the photos. Troop Leader Gloria Resma remarked later that the girls asked many questions.

The 20-poster display, printed in both English and Spanish, will be on view at RGC in Uvalde through Thur., Oct. 12 and is free and open to the public from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Fridays. For special showings or groups of 10 or more, please contact Laura Nelson at 830.279.3040 or via email at lnelson@sulross.edu to make arrangements.

The poster exhibition was born of the popular and award-winning museum exhibition of the same title that premiered November 2006 at the National Air and Space Museum. In 2007, “Earth from Space” won a U.S. Geological Survey communications award for science content.
