New Exhibit at the South Florida Science Museum
Check out the new exhibit, Science on a Sphere, at the South Florida Science Museum.
Developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), Science on a Sphere (SOS) is a six-foot suspended globe displaying animated images of atmospheric
storms, climate change, ocean temperature, animal migration patterns and more.
Imagine watching the nine-month trek of a juvenile loggerhead sea turtle as it swims
from its release site. Viewers can watch 500 years of changing climate or travel back to the time when the Earth’s continents were one large land mass. They can see the sun erupting in spectacular solar storms.
