Over the Sun is proud to work with Dr. Paul Sutter, astrophysicist at The Ohio State University’s CCAPP and Chief Scientist at Columbus’ COSI for the development of a short film and hands-on science center exhibit. This project is funded by a grant from the STEAM Factory, a diverse and inclusive grass-roots network in the Ohio State community that facilitates creative and interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and dissemination.
This grant engages Over the Sun to produce its first planetarium film. The film will introduce radio astronomy while tying the source of electromagnetic radiation to all living things. The hands-on exhibit will detect microwaves generated by the human body as demonstration of even the human body as a source of radiation.
The interviews are concluded, with footage acquisition at the Very Large Array (VLA), New Mexico, VFX generation, and editing to be completed in early 2017.
