      When people talk about diversifying an Eastern Kentucky economy dominated for a century by coal mining and poverty, they often don't aim very high: low-wage factories and corporate call centers.But you can see another possibility at Morehead State University's Space Science Center. Over the past decade, in partnership with the Kentucky Science and Technology Corp. and the University of Kentucky, the center has become a world leader in designing and building small, high-tech spacecraft of the future.One morning last week, I stood with Kris Kimel, president of KSTC, in the center's control room as engineers used computers to locate two Morehead-built satellites now circling the Earth. Faculty and students use the control room to download data and upload instructions to the satellites as they pass within range of one of the world's biggest space-tracking antennas, visible out the window on a nearby hilltop. "This is a different kind of call center," Kimel said.
