Science On a Sphere®

The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery invites you to enjoy Science On a Sphere®. Go where you’ve never been and take a tour of the cosmos from an entirely new perspective!

This 68-inch diameter globe, suspended in mid-air, takes visitors on a dynamic tour of Earth and space! Explore the darkest reaches of the space and discover some of the most breathtaking astronomical phenomena in the galaxy. Then view an astonishing array of visualizations showing Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, and land.

Imagine exploring the darkest reaches of space and viewing some of the most breathtaking astronomical phenomena in the galaxy. Then imagine watching 24 hours of time-capsulated images showing commercial air traffic around the world, or tracking turtles as they cross the Pacific.

Located in Tait Auditorium on the second floor of the Museum, Science On a Sphere® is a suspended carbon fiber globe that presents hard-to-grasp data and other complex information in a way that makes it accessible to everyone.
