What is Science on a Sphere?

Science on a Sphere® (SOS) is a room sized, global display system that uses computers and video projectors to display animated data onto the outside of a 68-inch diameter sphere. SOS was developed at the National Oceanic & Atmosphere Administration (NOAA)’s Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) in Boulder, Colorado.   

Science On Sphere® extends NOAA’s educational program goals, which are designed to increase public understanding of the environment using NOAA’s collective experience and knowledge of the earth’s land, oceans, and atmosphere. SOS enhances informal educational programs in science centers, universities, and museums across the country and internationally.  Animated images of atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean temperature can be shown on the sphere, which is used to explain what are sometimes complex environmental processes, in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating.
