HANCOCK COUNTY, Miss. — Researchers at NASA's Stennis Space Center have signed a Space Act Agreement with noted archaeologist Ken Karsmizki to apply NASA remote sensing technology to the task of identifying and mapping sites along the trail of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The expedition explored uncharted territory west of the Mississippi River for the U.S. government 200 years ago. NASA scientists at Stennis will work with Karsmizki to combine precision airborne and satellite imagery with detailed historic maps as well as Lewis and Clark journal entries to locate and preserve several sites along the trail of the Corps of Discovery, the name of the Lewis and Clark expedition team. The Montana State University TechLink Center and the NASA Earth Science Applications Directorate (ESAD) at Stennis helped facilitate this unique partnership.
