プロジェクト変遷:よっかいち座|Project History: Yokkaichi Constellation

コンパクトな活動期間

《よっかいち座》は、《だいちの星座》の中で唯一、博物館が企画した活動としてユニークだ。また、レクチャーから電波反射器の製作、及びそれらの配置と撮影までを2日間ですべて実施するというスケジュールで計画され、無事「だいち2号」からすべての電波反射器が確認できた。期間の短縮は主催者や参加者の負担を減らし、活動実施のハードルを下げる貴重な試みだったといえる。


Condensed activity schedule

Yokkaichi Constellation is unique among the Constellations of the Earth in that it was the only one to be organized by a museum. Moreover, the entire process – the lecture, the assembly and setup of corner reflectors, and the imaging – was scheduled to be carried out over two days. All the corner reflectors successfully showed up on Daichi 2’s imagery. Shortening the timeframe reduced the workload for the organizers and the participants. This was a valuable initiative that lowered the hurdle for carrying out the project.
