Event Description:

Grinnell College and The Grinnell Area Arts Council (GAAC) will host Observing With NASA, an exhibit kiosk from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory that engages visitors in the art and science of NASA imagery. “Observing With NASA” features a range of NASA’s most iconic images of planets like Jupiter and other galaxies to explore and opportunities for visitors to put their own artistic spin on these images through image analysis and processing.

“Observing With NASA” offers an introduction to the tools, data, and skills that NASA space scientists and data visualization experts use to create the images of deep space objects that we all know and love, such as the spiral galaxy and the Apollo site on the moon. Visitors to the kiosk will have the chance to create their own Astro-photograph and get a souvenir print at the end of the exhibition.
