Seeing the Universe: Visualizing Space for Informal Science Education Audiences

A NASA Explorer Institute Focus Group

On February 2–4, 2005, The American Museum of Natural History, the Space Telescope Science Institute, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science hosted a focus group workshop at the AMNH in New York City. The focus group brought together visualization providers, users, commercial vendors, and NASA scientists and mission personnel in order to evaluate the current state of astronomical visualization for informal science audiences, and to make recommendations to NASA on what next steps should be taken and on how to coordinate efforts within the community.

This web site will provide the results of the workshop and information pertinent to the on-going development efforts of the working group that was assembled. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Laura Danly (ldanly at the domain amnh.org).

Seeing the Universe: Visualizing Space for Informal Science Education Audiences, is supported by NASA as part of their Explorer Institutes Focus Groups initiative.
