NOAA’s Science On a Sphere® Animations Coming to Your Desktop


Today NOAA released a free, downloadable flat screen version of its popular Science On a Sphere® (SOS), SOS ExplorerTM. This new way to display the dynamics of Earth’s weather and climate, plate tectonics and more will help teachers bring these stunning science visualizations, usually found at museums and science centers, into the classroom, where students can learn by exploring.


CIRES is a partnership of NOAA and CU Boulder.
