Science on a Sphere lecture series continues with Jeff Stevenson, Imagination Station, who will present "Dynamic Earth" on Tuesday, November 4, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm., 1st floor Michael Schwartz Library. The earth below our feet has always been a constant in our lives. However, our planet has been changing and evolving long before we arrived and will continue to do so for millions of years after. Stevenson will demonstrate this evolution on the animated sphere.

Science on a Sphere exhibit
Now through December 16, Cleveland State University Michael Schwartz Library hosts the Science On a Sphere exhibit presented by NASA Glenn Research Center and sponsored by NASA's Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) Program. Science On a Sphere is a mesmerizing visualization system developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that uses computers and video projectors to display animated data on the outside of a suspended, 6-foot diameter, white sphere. The result is a unique and intuitive educational platform that can show real-time weather, planets, moons, tsunamis, climate models, and is only limited by the imagination.
