Comet 67P Through the Lens of Art - Rosetta Mission
Presented by Ekaterina Smirnova
Science-inspired Artist

Monday, October 24, 2016
4:00 P.M. in 180-101

In November 2014, a historical first, a human-made instrument was landed on a comet. The Rosetta mission by the European Space Agency (ESA) sent a spacecraft to comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The data published from the mission inspired Ekaterina Smirnova to create a set of artwork about 67P, including paintings, sculptures, a musical collaboration and implement augmented reality. She will present her artwork and will talk about her collaboration with ESA scientists.
