Through September 2, the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa is presenting Michael Benson’s Otherworlds. Benson’s composite, processed high-resolution images are based on NASA and the European Space Agency’s raw scientific data. With 41 images, the exhibition offers the viewer the incredible chance to view the incredible landscapes of the solar system—an amazing way to “travel” through space!
Benson is a Fellow of the New York Institute of the Humanities, a recent Visiting Scholar at the Center for Bits and Atoms in the MIT Media Lab, and a Weizmann Institute of Science Advocate for Curiosity. His latest of seven books is Space Odyssey: Stanley Kubrick, Arthur C. Clarke, and the Making of a Masterpiece, published by Simon & Schuster in April 2018.
