September 12, 2022

Event Navigation

Beginning September 12, the Oklahoma History Center (OHC) will host Observing With NASA, an authentic data experience with astronomical imaging. This exhibit kiosk from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory engages visitors in the art and science of NASA imagery. Observing With NASA offers an introduction to the tools, data, and skills that NASA space scientists and data visualization experts use to create the images of deep space objects that we all know and love.

Available at the OHC until December 31, 2022, Observing With NASA features a range of NASA’s most iconic images to explore and provides opportunities for visitors to put their own artistic spin on these images through analysis and processing. This kiosk has been incorporated into the OHC’s permanent exhibit Launch to Landing: Oklahomans and Space, which highlights the achievements of all Oklahomans who have contributed to the US aerospace program from its inception. Launch to Landing can be found in the Gaylord Special Exhibit Gallery on the first floor of the OHC.

This exhibit kiosk was developed for NASA by the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian under NASA award No. 80NSSC19M0158 to the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.
