Second Story, in collaboration with Snibbe Interactive, designed four interactive experiences for the Adler Planetarium Sky Theater Welcome Gallery, which opened earlier this month. The creative challenge: how to allow visitors to explore in the mode of different space scientists. In particular, how to represent the ways that astronomers, astronauts, engineers and theoreticians explore space. The initial sketches and final comps below show the early and final views of the interaction we devised with the client. Visitors can direct astronauts through space back to their shuttle, peer into deep space through lenses as an astronomer would, build a mars rover as an engineer, and manipulate graphical representations of the questions that theoreticians grapple with.
