Exoplanet Visualization Contest! $1500 in prizes for the most creative and inspiring visualization of real exoplanet data. Deadline May 1st.
Exoplanet Visualization Contest
Extrasolar planets, or exoplanets, are planets beyond our own Solar System. With the prospect of finding potentially habitable planets, this is one of the most exciting scientific areas of the 21st century. Space and ground based observing campaigns such as the Kepler mission have already found over 800 planets, and new planets are discovered almost every week.
If you want to take part in this contest and have a chance to win up to $1500, download the Open Exoplanet Catalogue and use this dataset of extrasolar planets to create crisp, stunning, and inspiring visualizations. You can use any scripting, programming, or visualization software to produce images, videos, sound files or interactive apps. Be creative!
