Presented by: Dr. Mark SubbaRao from the Adler Planetarium in Chicago

Abstract: The modern digital planetarium is a flexible immersive visualization facility, and a powerful tool for science communication and research. As datasets grow both in size and complexity immersive visualization will play an increasingly important role in data exploration and understanding. This presentation will focus on how data visualization in immersive environments (such as the planetarium) can be used to convey complex topics in contemporary science and how networking technology can be used to link experts to audiences across the globe.

This program is a part of Ball State’s Department of Physics and Astronomy colloquium series.
