ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Science On a Sphere was developed by the researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to help illustrate Earth system science to people of all ages. Using NOAA’s collective experience and knowledge of the earth’s land, oceans and atmosphere, this exhibit offers captivating lessons on environmental processes. It’s a visualization tool that gives you a completely new perspective. With one touch, you can see all the way to the bottom of the ocean where the Titanic sits, the 2011 earthquake in Japan and spreading tsunami or actual satellite images of our planet taken as recently as two hours before.
