Science on a Sphere® at the MSU Museum

Science On a Sphere® (SOS) has arrived at the MSU Museum!
Gallery now open, scheduled public shows start in January 2020

Imagine yourself in a darkened museum gallery. Gradually, four projectors illuminate a giant globe, seeming to float in front of you. You see a spectacular animation, showing geophysical, environmental, and cultural data projected on the globe. You watch our spinning earth - our tiny “blue marble" - from outer space. Then, the image instantly transforms into the rotating sphere of Mars, a history of cities on Earth, or even the interior of a biological cell. Come experience it for yourself!
