Learning About The Sun Through Sound
Join Marty for Exoplanet Installation and Sonification Event
Many schools have adopted exoplanets and decorated poles that will be
placed in scale outside the visitor center. The music reflects the qualities of
the known exoplanets.
Join Marty as he hosts "A Walk Through the Solar System":
Using a 4 foot Sun, participants will walk to Saturn and experience the size
of the Solar System for themselves. Featuring music from Solar Songs, Rock
Around the Bow Shock, the Climate Symphony, Mars water ice and the AIRMAP
projects. No charge. Dress warmly and bring a small notebook to jot down
your impressions along the way.
