Make Your Mark on an Asteroid!

The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is due to blastoff in September 2016. Its target is the asteroid Bennu. For the first time ever NASA is offering all of us the opportunity to place something of our own in the form of photographs or artwork on the surface of an asteroid.

If all goes well, OSIRUS Rx is planned to land on the asteroid in 2018 and return samples to Earth landing in the Utah desert on Sept. 24, 2023, a seven year journey to Bennu and back.

We at E&S are planning to submit a number of images from our current edge of Darkness show, which features Asteroid investigation and hope to have a new audience on Bennu!

If you’re interested in sending your material to Bennu, here’s the website. If you’re fortunate enough to be selected, do let us know!
Send Your Artwork on a Journey to the Stars We are all explorers in our own way. Whether it’s an expedition to a distant asteroid, meticulous research revealing the inner workings of a tiny cell, or the creation of a moving song or poem, exploration is the essence of our human spirit.

As part of a new 8K show production in conjunction with Houston Museum of Natural Science, Evans & Sutherland has a photography team on the ground north of the Arctic Circle. They are photographing the Aurora Borealis, while coordinating with astronauts aboard the International Space Station to capture the same Aurora, in the same locations at the same time.

Using special equipment these images are being specifically captured in 8K resolution for the fulldome. The first results of these coordinated aurora images are now coming in. Sunday night (7 February, 2016) this active aurora was captured by our team and the ISS astronauts at the same time over Norway. Over the next week we are hoping for more clear skies and active aurora to capture for show production, both from the ground and high above the Earth.

Looking good! The dome is now installed at +Houston Museum of Natural Science. We can't wait to see their True8K Digistar 5 system displayed on the new dome. The 10 Sony projectors are staged and currently being QA'ed in our test dome prior to shipment.

Welcome to the Digistar family, +Radford University College of Science and Technology! We're excited to see what great things you'll do with your new Digistar 5 system. The planetarium will also serve as a cross-discipline classroom space for the university. -via The Roanoke Times
RADFORD — There will soon be a new spot that will allow people to travel inside a molecule, back in time or to galaxies far, far away.

Bangkok Planetarium (ศูนย์วิทยาศาสตร์เพื่อการศึกษา ท้องฟ้าจำลองกรุงเทพ) opens their spectacular 4K Digistar 5 theater with our fulldome production, Experience the Aurora.

"We've improved our facilities to provide more in-depth, up-to-date information about astronomy, which we hope will inspire both children and adults.
