|Special LARGEST Presentation September 24|
| Explore Jupiter through Largest on Thursday, September 24 at the NASA Goddard Visitor Center |
On Thursday, September 24 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm, NASA Goddard will host a special event at its Visitor Center in Greenbelt, Md. This will not be your typical science event as NASA astrophysicist, Amy Simon-Miller will lead attendees through a virtual exploration of Jupiter’s captivating features using Largest, a film that will be projected on a 6-foot sphere. Attendees will experience an up-close-and-personal encounter of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, a storm larger than Earth that's been raging for hundreds of years. They will also view the planet’s mini-solar system of more than 60 moons experience and dramatic fireballs with up to six million megatons of explosive power.
Following the lecture, Michael Starobin, director of Largest and film producer at NASA Goddard, will discuss the creative process and technical challenges for making a movie to be projected on a sphere. The film is based on data from NASA's robotic missions to the outer solar system, including Voyager, Galileo, and Cassini, as well as Hubble Space Telescope observations.
