NSF Recognizes NASA Segment From Dynamic Earth

The National Science Foundation, in conjunction with the journal Science, recently announced the winners of the 2013 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge. Taking first place in the video category was “Coronal Mass Ejection and Ocean/Wind Circulation,” a segment produced by NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio for the Spitz Creative Media fulldome show Dynamic Earth.

"It’s one of the top visualisations
we’ve ever done”

- Horace Mitchell, head of NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio

As described by Science, “The segment used real satellite data and six computational models to create a vision that is both beautiful and scientifically accurate. Its long, swooping scenes reveal how different parts of the climate system interact at very different scales.”
