Science in a Sphere

This “Science in a Sphere” will give us an advantage in the educating our guests and students by creating a 12 ft diameter LED video sphere which will display as if viewing the earth from outer space. It can show many things including real time satellite imagery from NOAA and NASA, show weather around the globe, hurricanes, population densities, the earth at night and all the lighted population centers. This dynamic and articstic tool can show a graphical history of population going back 2000 years as a video, compressing that time to only a minute. Because it has high def video capabilities and will have a 1 gigabyte fiber line, it can synchronize with Google Ocean, showing the world under the oceans and allow people to explore anywhere on the planet.
