Kimberly Arcand, Visualization Scientist Emerging Technology Lead for NASA’s Chandra Observatory at the Center for Astrophysics Harvard and Smithsonian, has been working with Christine Malec and JJ Hunt, from the Talk Description to Me Podcasts, describing imagery created from data gathered by a variety of telescopes.
Kimberly’s work in visualization has connected her up with Christine and JJ to describe the imagery in a way that brings the scientific and abstract languages together to help bring about a more inclusive experience from the data conceptualized for imagery.
Sonification of the data is available on the Chandra X-Ray Center web site. You can listen to the Data Sonification’s: Stellar, Galactic, and Black Hole.
You can learn about recent discoveries and updates of the Chandra mission in video and audio formats.
