The Science Panorama brings immersive Earth and space science exploration to the Nature Research Center at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, NC. We designed and deployed the Science Panorama, an immersive theater with a 23’ semi-permanent panorama and an OmniFocus 30530 projection system. A kiosk with a custom user interface launches WorldViewer content focused on natural processes from the global – with animations created for Science on a Sphere – and the local – with images from LANDSAT’s 40 years of Earth observation. WorldComposer will allow the museum’s content team to keep the content fresh and current with science stories as they happen in the news, presented in an interactive, immersive context. And in spring of 2015, the museum expanded their content to include kiosk versions NASA JPL’s Eyes on the Earth and Eyes on Exoplanets.
We were thrilled to be part of the opening event for the NRC in April 2012 – over 40,000 people attended the NRC’s 24-hour opening gala!
