Caption: A fisheye-lens view of Dave Jones, a longtime electronics technician for the Space Science and Engineering Center, making adjustments to the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The sizable piece of research equipment is used to track two NASA satellites and acquire images of the Earth's entire surface every two days. The delicate MODIS antenna is housed inside a protective 22-foot radome, a structure that rests on a 40-foot tower mounted to the rooftop of the 15-story Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences Building.
