    The Century 21 Exposition took place between April 21 and October 21, 1962 and is also known as the Seattle World's Fair.Also known as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Exhibit"The introductory displays explain something of NASA's history and of what it is trying to do. Beyond is a section devoted to models and mock-ups of satellites successfully launched and orbited by the United States. Their names are familiar to most visitors: Explorer, Vanguard, Pioneer, Ranger, Mariner and Topside Sounder. A pictorial display shows where NASA's tracking satellite stations are located and how they trace the progress of the manmade moons around the earth. It also reveals some of the information the stations have been able to relay from the cruising satellites to scientists." (Century 21 Exposition. (1962).
