Science On a Sphere

Science On a Sphere

Explore the paths of storms, changes in ocean temperature or the surface of Mars with our new permanent exhibit, Science On a Sphere® (SOS).

Science On a Sphere is an interactive globe and three-dimensional data projection system that transforms real-time data from our Earth and other planets into striking graphic representations with stunning detail and accuracy. It is the focal point of the RMSC’s new Data Theater, the re-invented Schuyler C. Townson Research Library reading room, where geographical tools and other artifacts will be featured as the exhibit progresses.

Check it out now on the museum’s second floor.
