Outline

One in a series of projects drawing new “constellations” on land with satellites and handmade radio wave reflectors. The Earth observing satellite DAICHI-2 performs land imaging by beaming signals from space that reflect back to it. Rows of children from Takahagi’s four elementary schools held reflectors to draw the “constellation.” School PA systems and so on then broadcast to them sounds announcing signal contact.
