The Symphony Of Science May Come To A Planetarium Near You

The Symphony of Science recently celebrated its fifth anniversary.  Congratulations.  Known for putting scientists through an auto-tune process in the construction of songs, the Symphony of Science is the brainchild of John Boswell.  You might be familiar with his work for PBS.  His full spectrum of video work can be found on YouTube by searching for melodysheep.

The latest Symphony effort is new in form more than content.  With two collaborators Boswell has converted at least one of his videos into a dome format.  This means planetariums can run the shows on the interior of their domes.  The converted video for Monsters of the Cosmos is available for viewing, but a browser window is a far cry from an immense panoramic screen dominating your field of view.  If you’d like to see your local planetarium use the videos, send them a link to the page.
