#SciBar: The Cosmic Symphony. A Multi-Sensory Inspection of the Universe.
SciBar is a series of free and fascinating science-themed talks.
Beautiful multi-colour images of planets, galaxies and even the region close to a supermassive black hole are regularly presented on television, online and in printed materials. These images are very inspiring and showcase a wide array of the extreme physics of our Universe.
However, the images presented are far from what can be seen with the naked eye. In this talk, Astronomer Dr Chris Harrison will demonstrate how we can take multi-sensory approaches to enjoy and study the Universe. He’ll take us on an an introductory tour of projects from around the world that present astronomical data or phenomena through sound and tactile models, with applications for education and for professional research.
Crucially, these multi-sensory approaches make astronomy more accessible to those who are blind or who have impaired vision. Experience an array of audio experiences of astronomy, including listening to planets around distant stars and hearing the stars appear above the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
