With support from the Webb mission and NASA’s Universe of Learning, a team of experts, including scientists and musicians, has created a new way to explore the images and data of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.
This combination of science and art can help improve how blind and low-vision communities experience, explore, and immerse themselves in some of the first full-color infrared images and data from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope – through sound. Listeners can enter the complex soundscape of the Cosmic Cliffs in the Carina Nebula, explore the contrasting tones of two images that depict the Southern Ring Nebula, and identify the individual data points in a transmission spectrum of hot gas giant exoplanet WASP-96 b.
