This morning, satellite control center HISPASAT in Arganda del Rey (Madrid) has received the relatives of the explorers of the Ruta Quetzal BBVA 2013, and has connected itself with the young people who currently are in Panama, through a satellite live videoconference, through the Spanish operator.
HISPASAT Operations Manager, Pedro Luis Molinero, was in charge of receiving the half a hundred relatives who went to the center, and could speak with the explorers and see them in real time, and how they are living this experience.
HISPASAT has been accompanying the Ruta Quetzal BBVA for 10 years, and has facilitated the communications of the organization, the participants and the media that accompany them, serving as a bridge of communication between Spain and Latin America.
