ISB Consilience: Museum of Awe

The Museum of Awe is all around us; you just have to find a door. Attendees of the 2017 Consilience event, including ISB’s Dr. Ilya Shmulevich (center), examine a mini “pop-up” experience created by NASA JPL visual strategists Dan Goods and David Delgado. The tank allows people to see particles that have come down to earth from outer space. The experience is designed as a simple reminder of the gift and privilege to be alive. Dan and David were featured speakers during ISB’s 2017 Consilience event that took place on May 19. Read more at isbscience.org/consilience and view the photo gallery.
