“The inaugral screening of ‘Spectral Power’, a full dome short film born out of conversations with scientists from the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Alongside Royal Museums Greenwich astronomers and curators they will discuss the project across art and science. The event will include the use of the planetarium to show how our maps of the Universe can appear quite different when seen from afar as opposed to our Earthbound perspective. Various speakers will help couch the film piece in the context of finding new ways to interpret data by approaching it from different perspectives. This event is part of the Observatory’s ‘Universe Unseen’ series of programming.”
