Deep Space LIVE: Earth and The Cosmos
Thursday, March 1, 2018 / 7-8 PM
(Linz, February 26, 2018) Hundreds of earth observation satellites now orbit our planet to help scientists worldwide analyze complex global interrelationships and identify potential threats—monitoring the clear-cutting of rain forests, surveillance of oceanic surfaces, sounding the alarm when forest fires break out, and measuring our expanding megacities. The Ars Electronica Center’s Birgit Hartinger will use material from an in-house exhibition entitled “Spaceship Earth” to screen breathtaking satellite images of the earth’s surface and provide insights into the data that can be derived from them. Then, we’ll take leave of geo-orbit for a 3-D journey through the endless expanses of the universe.
Deep Space LIVE
The Ars Electronica Center hosts a Deep Space LIVE event every Thursday (except holidays) at 7 PM. Each presentation features ultra-high-definition imagery in 16×9-meter format and is accompanied by expert commentary, entertaining stand-up repartee, or musical improvisation. Whether great works from the history of art, space travel, journeys of discovery in the nano-world or a live concert is what you’ve come to behold, Deep Space LIVE stands for enlightening entertainment amidst breathtaking worlds of imagery. Holders of a valid Museum ticket are admitted free of charge.
