プロジェクト変遷:たねがしま座| Project History: Tanegashima Constellation

だいちの星座がスタート

本活動は、参加する小学校児童らがJAXA種子島宇宙センターにて打ち上げ前の「だいち2号」を見学することからスタートした。強く風が吹く種子島の気象条件や「だいち2号」の高い解像能に合わせ、金沢美術工芸大学の学生らとともに考案した新しい電波反射器が製作された。小学校で大勢の児童が参加するレクチャーを実施し、地上絵を描くための電波反射器の配置は小学校のグラウンドを利用した。金沢美術工芸大学と鹿児島大学が小学校の教員や児童らと協力し、はじめて《だいちの星座》が地上絵として具体化した。


Start of Constellations of the Earth

The project began with a visit by pupils from the participating elementary schools to the JAXA’s Tanegashima Space Center, to see the Daichi 2 before its launch. Then came the assembly of the corner reflectors, which had been devised together with students from the Kanazawa College of Art. They had been designed to accommodate the climate conditions on the island of Tanegashima with its strong winds, and to fit the high resolution capability of Daichi 2’s sensor. A lecture was held at the elementary school, attended by a large number of pupils. The school grounds were used as the locations for the corner reflectors. It was the collaborative effort of Kanazawa College of Art, Kagoshima University, and the staff and pupils at the elementary schools that created the first Constellations of the Earth geoglyph.
