FEATURE
Science on a Sphere is Here!
Science on a Sphere, a project from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, has arrived on Indiana University’s Bloomington campus. This makes IU one of only four universities in the country to have the resource. The sphere is housed in the university’s new Cyber-Infrastructure Building, and its unique effects are being used by everyone from data-research students to digital artists. It was funded by the Office of the Vice President of Information Technology. Correspondent Casey Kuhn spoke with Tassie Gniady (Guh-nay-dee), graduate assistant and sphere liaison, for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
