NASA Orbit Pavilion Brings the Sounds of Space to Earth

Nasa Orbit Pavilion Interior

With help from architects and the design team at STUDIOKCA, NASA is bringing the sounds of space to the public with the NASA Orbit Pavilion. Based on the concept of hearing the ocean inside a conch shell, visitors to the pavilion can hear the sounds of satellites orbiting through outer space.

The shell shaped pavilion is mobile to allow visitors all over the country to experience the trajectories of 19 satellites orbiting earth through the sense of sound. It made its debut at the World Science Festival in New York City in the summer of 2015.

The pavilion is made with 3,500 square feet of water-jet cut aluminum panels, and is “scribed with over 100 ‘orbital paths’ fitted together and bolted to a curved framework of aluminum tubes.” The speakers arranged within the 30-foot diameter interior space of the structure are programmed by artist and composer Shane Myrbeck to map, translate and broadcast the sounds of the satellites in real time.

“Surface perforations echo the orbital paths of the satellites, culminating around the oculus at the center of the sound chamber, while helping to mitigate exterior noise and decrease wind loads on the relatively light structure,” says the architects.

The traveling Pavilion’s next stop is at the Huntington Library Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California in the spring of 2016. [Photos courtesy of STUDIOKCA]

The Shopping Bag Method for Staying Clutter-Free

My closet is a mess. I’ve gone on ignoring it long enough, but now my clothes problem is seeping into the bedroom pile by pile. It’s time for an autointervention. Absolute and sovereign rules about what to clear out, like the backwards clothes hanger thing, are easy to digest, and help slow-starters like myself to actually dive in and get clutter-free — but only for a little while.
