July 1,2016: The captivating state-of the-art facility of Science City, Kolkata -‘Science on a Sphere’ was inaugurated by Hon’ble Shri Keshari Nath Tripathi, Governor of West Bengal on its 19th anniversary.
The 6 feet diameter suspended globe through animated and dynamic images of the Earth projects its landmass, oceans, oceanic currents, temperature zones, clouds and snow cover areas among others. There are 520 datasets used by the system out of which 40 are real time. The datasets in the system are obtained from the satellites and are constantly updated to present the latest atmospheric status on Earth.
The Governor was delighted to learn that Science City had set up Science on a Sphere, first of its kind in eastern India. He said that here one could experience the dynamic Earth in front of their eyes and the magic of digital simulations enabled to shrink it to a size that fits the scale of visualization. The general public could now get a better understanding of the complex and delicate environmental systems. Science City, Kolkata has successfully engaged the common audience by presenting information in an understandable and acceptable manner and, at the same time, making it an enjoyable learning experience.
A specially designed folder on the new facility Science on a Sphere was unveiled by the Governor in the presence of Shri A S Manekar, Director General, NCSM, Shri E Islam, Director, BITM, distinguished guests and students.
The datasets are obtained from The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USA which supported installation of this facility. The datasets are divided into the categories of atmosphere, ocean, land, astronomy and others. The dataset entry comprises a description of the dataset, a picture, a video, notable features, relevant links and source of information.
Shri A D Choudhury, Director, Science City threw more light on the facility and mentioned that it is a unique educative tool which simplifies the public understanding of our various environmental processes. One can instantly monitor the areas where earthquakes occurred during the last few hours, how the Tsunami waves travel to various coastal areas, the artificial illumination pattern, air traffic in different zones and different times etc.
This new facility can accommodate approximately 70 visitors at a time in a specially designed climatically controlled room.
As part of the celebration, around 250 underprivileged and Divyang (specially-abled) students from Manovikas Kendra took part in interactive activities, contests and live shows.
