We worked closely with NASA and Lucas Film to create Space Research And You, a suite of museum presentations that seamlessly combine live performers with virtual environments to communicate space science via interviews, animation and live audience participation.
The presentations are designed for public venue audiences of about 50 individuals; at museums and science centers. Each presentation involves a live presenter on stage, seamlessly interacting with a real-time virtual environment and co-host (R2D2 from Star Wars), and facilitating audience participation activities while informing them about space research through video, animations, graphics, and hands-on demonstrations.
Space Center Houston is using Space Research And You as an on-going presentation for daily school group visitors.
Robert Burgess former CEO of Adobe nominated Del Padre’s “Space Research And You” for inclusion in “A Search For New Heroes” the On-Line Archive of the Computerworld Honors Program. Nominated in the Education and Academia category, the project case study has earned a permanent place in global history at the more than 150 libraries, museums, and universities worldwide.
