Planetarium 2.0: Week of Art - Sonification of Space

8/13/2024 at 2:00 PM to 2:30 PM

Event Description

Planetarium 2.0 is more than an upgrade, as our science team has been working to build a “next level” educational experience! From July 1st to August 31st, 2024, we bring space down to earth in a whole new way! Each week we cover a specific topic within the realms of astronomy, spaceflight, S.T.E.A.M, and history. These weeks, covering the sun, earth, moon, and beyond will highlight some of the next-level programming that the Lohman Planetarium team has been developing with our new system. This will be some of the most comprehensive and enriching programming our team has worked on, and it illustrates what the planetarium will be bringing for the future, so you don't want to miss it! 

2:00pm Sonification of Space

Join us in the Lohman Planetarium at MOAS as we infuse mind-bending sound and beautiful astronomical imagery together for an immersive celestial experience. Using content from NASA's "Data Sonification" project, which converted various space telescope images into an auditory format, we will gain a unique perspective of the universe using multiple sensory methods. You will get to "hear" the visual data from objects like the Whirlpool Galaxy, Cat's Eye Nebula, Supernova 1987A, and even our own Milky Way's galactic center. Along the auditory journey, we will explore the insight we have gained from studying these celestial objects, and how the combination of art and science can enable a greater understanding of the universe. 


Planetarium admission is not included in general museum admission. MOAS members receive unlimited planetarium admission. Register for this show online or at the Museum's guest relations desk.
