Join us live on YouTube on October 13, 2022 at 3:30pm ET with Dr. Kim Arcand, a leading expert in astronomy visualization and a pioneer in 3D imaging, printing, and extended reality applications with astrophysics data.

Talk Abstract: Information of our Universe doesn't have to be just a two-dimensional snap shot. We can transform these digital assets to be able to listen, feel, or (virtually) move through cosmic objects. Listen to the debris from an exploded star, walk through the core of our Milky Way in 3D through virtual reality, feel vibrations of a stellar nursery, and experience our universe anew. Learn about some of the innovative ways that experts and non-experts can explore astrophysical data through sonification, 3D printing and extended reality.
