Kavli Fulldome Lecture Series - A Universe of Surprises

The Adler Planetarium is hosting its 7th installment of the Kavli Fulldome Lecture series, and we’re looking for partners to share in this live experience. Dr. Laura Trouille & Dr. Chris Lintott will show how scientists cope with surprises, what’s it’s like to think you might have found aliens, and how you too might make a remarkable discovery from the comfort of your
home. We use Uniview 2.0.27 and Uniview 3 to turn their research into an immersive experience, and domecast it to sites like yours around the world (provided you have the same version of Uniview!).
ZEISS is partnering with us in support of this domecasting endeavor, so if you have a dome or flat screen theater running Uniview 2.0.27 or Uniview 3, you’ll be ready to receive our domecast feed once we send you an asset data packet. If you don’t have a theater or Uniview, don’t worry! We’re also domecasting our evening lecture live, directly to YouTube 360. All you and your guests need are smartphones, and Google Cardboards that we can
provide. The recording will be available on YouTube for those who can’t participate in the live broadcast.
Our mission is to inspire exploration and understanding of the Universe, and we think making that inspiration easy for our partners to achieve is key. If you’re interested in joining us, we’ll take care of almost everything. You’ll be provided with media assets, ideas for how to organize a lecture viewing event, and all the digital lecture content at no cost to you. In fact, all we need from you at this point is to send me an email if you’re interested in participating!
