Star Voyager: Visualising Space
Star Voyager: Visualising Space
Explore the fascinating junction between science and 3D filmmaking with this one-of-a-kind gallery talk.

Presented by Swinburne's Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing, the talk will illuminate the work of the scientists and filmmakers who created a 3D film of Mars for the Star Voyager exhibition, using live data streams and 3D stereoscopic filmmaking.

Dr Christopher Fluke, astronomer and astronomy educator with the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing who worked on the Centre's original 3D flight to Mars in 2001, will introduce new work in Star Voyager.

Gain a unique perspective on how difficult it is to visualise data gathered in the far reaches of space and learn about how far both visualisation software and the data have come in the last ten years, while considering how to balance art and science in filmmaking.

Presented in partnership with Swinburne University of Technology, Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing.
