OpenSpace Live Stream Event: Sun Earth Interaction – 3/24/18

Life on Earth is made possible by its proximity to the Sun. Yet even with the protection of our magnetic field, we face a daily barrage of radiation—the solar wind—which flows outward from the Sun.

Follow NASA Goddard’s Community Coordinated Modeling Center’s researchers Masha Kuznetsova and Leila Mays in their explanations about this fascinating topic during a live event at the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium. We will also be exploring the nature of eclipses and showing eclipse models provided by Jon Linker, Predictive Science Inc.

The content is rendered using the open-source Astrovisualization framework OpenSpace ( , which is a collaboration between Linköping University, the American Museum of Natural History, Goddard’s Community Coordinated Modeling Center, New York University, and the University of Utah.
