About This Exhibit
The Observing With NASA kiosk was created by the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard and Smithsonian and uses their MicroObservatory Robotic Telescope Network that was built specifically for use by public audiences of all ages. The telescopes were designed to allow non-professionals interested in astronomy to use small but high-quality instruments for observing the sky.
The Observing With NASA exhibition engages visitors in the art and science of NASA imagery. The exhibition features a range of NASA’s most iconic images of planets like Jupiter, the Spiral Galaxy, and others for visitors to explore and opportunities for visitors to put their own artistic spin on these images through image analysis and processing.
The Observing With NASA Exhibit and programs were developed by the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard and Smithsonian with support from NASA’s TEAM II program.
