New Science Central Exhibit Brings Work of NASA, NOAA to Fort Wayne
This weekend, Science Central in Fort Wayne opens a new, million-dollar exhibit called "Science on a Sphere."
Originally developed by NOAA as a way to visualize global weather events, the exhibit sports a suspended spherical screen capable of showing images of weather events and geological phenomena as they happen around the world. The images are derived from hundreds of data sets made available by the fleet of satellites circling Earth every day.
And if you're looking for a bit of fun, Science Central Executive Director Martin Fisher says he can also turn the sphere into a disco ball.
WBOI’s Sean Bueter sat down with Fisher and NASA’s Maurice Henderson to find out more.
"Science on a Sphere" opens at Science Central in Fort Wayne Oct. 5.
