Abstract :

This talk will present and demonstrate the NASA funded open source initiative, OpenSpace,

which paves the path for the next generation of public outreach in large scale immersive

environments such as dome theaters and planetariums. OpenSpace is also a tool for space

and astronomy research as well as a platform for technical visualization research. It opens up

the possibilities to dynamically load and visualize data from simulations such as current

space weather as well as data from instruments on space crafts. As an example, OpenSpace

will, in a live demonstration, be used to show the New Horizons Pluto flyby on

July 14th, 2015. A recent feature of OpenSpace is the globe browsing support which enables contextualization of high resolution imagery of planet surfaces.

The Gaia Data Release 2  will also be visualized. The project builds on a collaboration

between Linköping University, The American Museum of Natural History, NASA Goddard

Space Flight Center, New York University, University of Utah, and University of Vienna.
