NASA is famous for beautiful space images, but did you know you can listen to them? Go behind the scenes with the team that creates “sonifications,” translations of data into sound, and learn how meaningful they are to people who are blind or low vision.
Learn about the Chanda X-ray Observatory, which celebrates its 25th birthday this summer.
After the film, enjoy a Q&A with Dr. Kimberly Arcand, a leading expert in astronomy visualization and an innovator in 3D imaging, printing, and extended reality applications with astrophysics data, and Elizabeth Landau, who has been working with NASA to tell inspiring stories of exploring the cosmos since 2014.
This program is presented in partnership with the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, and NASA.
This event is free. Registration is encouraged: https://hirshhorn.si.edu/event/film-listen-to-the-universe
