It’s an honor to see this profile of our collaboration with NASA JPL in NASA’s Spinoff publication. As the article says: “It all started in 2004 when Kevin Hussey, the manager of visualization technology applications and development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), was talking to a colleague who wondered, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if you could ride along with a spacecraft while it’s doing its thing—especially if it is in a precarious situation or something noteworthy is going on?’”
Thus began the project that has now created Eyes on the Earth, Eyes on the Solar System, and Eyes on Exoplanets. We’ve worked with NASA JPL to incorporate our Omnity geometry correction software into these interactive platforms, and we’re licensed to distribute an Elumenati version of the software for domes and spheres – like the GeoDome Theater and the Magic Planet at JPL’s Earth Science Center. Our collaboration with JPL helps make real-time NASA mission data available in immersive environments everywhere.
