ARCHITECTURE-ARQUITECTURA TODAY:Science Museum in London to Debut New Permanent Climate Science Gallery
LONDON.-The Science Museum , London, will open a new permanent climate science gallery - ‘atmosphere: exploring climate science’ on 4 December 2010.
‘atmosphere’ will provide a dedicated space for Science Museum visitors to deepen their understanding of climate science in an enjoyable, engaging and memorable way. It will include interactive exhibits and a variety of objects to explain how the climate system works, to show how scientists study the system and to summarise the current state of knowledge about the climate.
The Science Museum will use its long-established expertise in science communication to provide information on climate science for everyone, no matter their level of prior knowledge. Visitors to ‘atmosphere: exploring climate science’ will be able to investigate:
• An immersive “gallery world” with its own atmosphere and landscapes. These beautiful, dynamic elements are inter-connected and programmed to respond to visitors’ game-play in ways which imitate the Earth’s complex system.
• Five “story zones” each using imaginative and engaging hands-on exhibits to explore different aspects of climate science, including; the source of the Earth’s climatic zones; the way greenhouse gases affect the Earth’s energy balance; and the way humans have altered the carbon cycle.
• A flight spare Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer used to detect sea surface temperature from space alongside objects such as a tree ring sample and a stalagmite sample, used by scientists to unravel the secrets of Earth’s past climate.
