3-D Astronomy Shows
The new Marston Exploration Theater (MET) in ISTB 4 is designed to cater to a variety of audiences. First, it is intended to support undergraduate level instruction of survey earth and space sciences curriculum by providing visualizations of science principals in way that has not been done at ASU heretofore. Second, we will create content including images and simulations of current exploration technologies, especially SESE research, and make these available to an internal and external audience. Third, we will provide a compelling 3D experience for K-12 student as part of our important EPO mission. Fourth, we will deliver "documentary" style presentations along with author Q and A in this state-of-the-art and amazing format.
The Marston Exploration Theater will feature shows of topical interest (i.e. Jupiter, constellations of summer sky, gas giants, etc.). Planetarium shows will begin in January 2014.
Two programs alternate:
1. Undiscovered Worlds is about exoplanet exploration and research.
2. Journey to the Edge of the Universe demonstrates the scale of the known universe in both space and time.
NOTE: Exceptions for special events: Sat. Nov. 2nd and Sat. Nov. 9th.
