Using NOAA and NASA datasets, SOS has developed unique programs that allow the SOS audiences to observe:

  • Real-time weather, historical weather systems and projected future weather patterns.
  • The depth and intensity of real-time earthquakes, historical earthquakes and related tsunamis.
  • Real-time volcanic activity and historic eruptions.
  • Tectonic plate movements, with related earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis.
  • Ocean temperatures, currents and scientific buoy locations.
  • Climate change information and projections of climate change impacts.
  • Earth’s shifting magnetic fields and historical aurora activity.
  • Using NASA datasets, we can tour the solar system’s planets and their moons.
  • Movement of migrating sharks, whales, birds and other migratory animals.
  • These are just a few of the hundreds of projections possible at the Science on a Sphere Theater
