Science On a Sphere

NASA gave a special Science On a Sphere™ (SOS) demonstration to HM Elizabeth II, Queen of England and her husband, HRH Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, and other members of the Royal Family on Tuesday, May 8, 2007.

More and more museums and visitor centers are offering this facinating presentation method, including our own Goddard Visitor Center.

You can find WMAP images for use in Science On a Sphere™ presentations in the LAMBDA Microwave Data Archive.
