About this Museum
This site is under construction. In the end, it will form the basis of a Virtual museum dedicated to the life's work of Verner E. Suomi -- inventor, mentor, and tinkerer. We hope you will come back and visit us later!

This virtual museum is being developed at The University of Wisconsin-Madison, where Professor Suomi lived and worked. It is a cooperative venture between the National Science Foundation, the Space Science and Engineering Center, and the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies.

Our museum consists of several alcoves.  Each deals with one of the areas that Prof. Suomi was involved in during his career.

In addition, each page will have one or more navigation buttons, like you see on the left.  Here's what they do:
This will always take you to this page - the Main Lobby.
