Earth Through the Eyes of Astronauts

September 14, 2009  |  Mapping

Bella Gaia, or Beautiful Earth, is a unique view of earth through the eye's of astronauts in an effort to provide some sentiment to our home planet.

BELLA GAIA is a new immersive theater experience, a portal for an audience to develop a deeper connection and empathy with our planet Earth. Created by award winning director and classically trained violinist Kenji Williams, BELLA GAIA features a 45 minute live performance by Kenji with a fulldome planetarium immersion of orbiting visualizations of Earth from space.

Below is a five-minute preview of the visualizations in the "Live Atlas":

I had to mute it, because the music wasn't my cup of tea, but the visualizations themselves are interesting, much like some of the other space views we've been seeing lately.

[Thanks, Kristy]
