In this week’s ESOblog post she tells us about her role in creating the AstroCalendar, a database of astronomical events that brings the past. Implementation: This use case will be implemented by the AstroCalendar module of D2D. AstroCalendar is a project of ESO, for the ESO Supernova Planetarium.

The perpetual calendar indicators here are a set of three tiered rings that surround the central flying tourbillon with its signature C-shaped cage. Rather than bringing the latest science into the dome hours or even minutes after it is published, new data is typically presented days or even weeks thereafter — and often never, as there are so many barriers. Science has come from people of all ages and levels — some discoveries were even made by amateur astronomers in their back gardens!

On Monday we showed you the new Calibre de Cartier Diverthe first in-house tool watch from the maison. Press Releases — — — — Announcements Stars ESO New on eso.

For now, the AstroCalendar has two main uses. The crown-adjusted functions go both backwards and forwards smoothly, something that can’t be said of most perpetuals.

It is automatically wound via the large winding rotor, which you can see through the caseback. Around Increment per year: Subscribe Contact Site Map. The MB x pixels image Data are marked for download and are displayed on the dome after some minutes. Time, date, and month are all set via the crown, while a simple corrector advances the day.

The first is in planetariums; it has already been incorporated into the Data2Dome project which is a content distribution system used by the majority of planetarium software including Digistar 6 which the ESO Supernova uses.


I am hugely grateful to the rest of the ePOD staff, who were always incredibly kind and helpful, but I would also like to use this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who helped me collect the information and translate all the written content from English to German. The following are use cases which are currently being implemented by Content Providers. In about ten minutes, you will know how to check if you should be keeping a low profile or coming out more in the limelight, when you should publish your book and when you should focus on your health.

AstroCalendar is one of the best tools for you to gain insight in your timing for the future by understanding your past. It is another beast of a movement from Carole Forestier-Kasapi and her team at Cartier’s fine watchmaking department.

Data2Dome allows planetarium presenters to act as astronomical weathermen. Please follow and like us: Today, however, this flow of exciting new content is typically not integrated in planetariums.

The architecture of the building itself helps visitors to make this journey, to take a step away from what they know towards what they don’t know.

It is clear looking back at the history of science that collaboration is key. The associated assets images, all-sky images, flat videos and fulldome videos are downloaded, automatically distributed to all render nodes of the planetarium system and available for instant presentation.

Within hours a human curator finds the press release interesting and features it. She has an education in science communication and in organising outreach events and she has previously volunteered at science festivals. I am always really curious about the reaction people have when they first walk through our doors.

Reading the circular mechanism becomes intuitive very quickly. Asrocalendarium arrive at the planetarium and through a news feed find out everything interesting happening in the sky that day, as well as lots of historically interesting events.

Due to its importance and actuality the asset soars in the ranking. Throughout the planning, we focused on the Supernova values: Do you have a favourite astronomical event that you felt should be included in the AstroCalendar?

Visit Cartier for more. They can also see high-quality images relating to different events. I get particularly excited talking to teenagers about astronomy, and seeing the sparkle of curiosity in their eyes. The biggest innovation of the new in-house calibre MC is that the main functions are all controlled by gears instead of levers.

Then, we move away through the rest of the unknown, mysterious Universe, on an adventure through space and through human exploration. An event could be something interesting happening in the sky tonight or over the next few days. They can then base their own show on this news feed, and this is already happening around the world! Talking Watches With Fred Savage. My role was to set clear criteria for choosing which events to include and then to put the events into the database.

It is quickly discovered by presenters worldwide in the GUI. The event appears in the presenter menu.
