Read all about it- Transit Antenna has made front page news!
The friendly town of Regent, North Dakota is where we are calling home for the next few days as we have begun bringing to fruition an out of this world installation project . We arrived here late Tuesday night eager to start sketching out plans for our sculpture. This small town of a little over 200 is home to The Enchanted Highway, and the perfect destination to build a life size lunar lander in celebration of the 40th anniversary of man’s first walk on the moon. Gary Greff, the creator of the large scale scrap metal sculptures that line the 28 mile stretch of blacktop that is The Enchanted Highway, has been captivating passersby for the past fifteen years with his works of art, and is generous enough to let us use his tools, shop, scrap metal, and fork lift to put together our lander.
A design originally thought to be constructed out of trash and cardboard has morphed into a creation of permanent proportions. Bob and Seth have been testing their welding chops on the 16 foot square base, while Jamie and I have begun putting together astronaut costumes for a live reenactment of the moon walk, Transit Antenna style, to be performed at the unveiling of the moon lander on Sunday in Regent. We contacted the local papers in hopes of spreading the word about the event, and ended up as the cover story on the front page of the Saturday edition of the Dickinson Press.

We have a tremendous amount of hard work and heavy lifting to do in the next five days, but are extremely excited to be celebrating this momentous anniversary with the people of Regent and the surrounding communitites.
