Sonification of Space

Sonification of SpaceJoin 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.
